    Oct 8, 2015

    ORNL Federal Credit Union is now accepting applications for the B.A. Candler/ORNL FCU scholarship to the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, for the 2016-2017 school year. The scholarship was established in 1993 to honor Bob A. Candler who retired as president of the Credit Union after 31 years of service.

    Each year, ORNL Federal Credit Union, through the University of Tennessee general scholarship fund, awards a $1,000 scholarship to a deserving student/member with excellence in education and social merit. The scholarship provides $1,000 toward the cost of tuition, books, and other school related expenses. Members of ORNL Federal Credit Union and members of their families who are enrolled or plan to enroll in the University of Tennessee at Knoxville and who are pursuing a 4-year degree are eligible to compete for this scholarship.

    Applications can be found on the Credit Union’s Web site at www.ornlfcu.com under the Tools tab by clicking on the Applications link and scrolling down to the B. A. Candler/ORNL FCU Scholarship section at the bottom. Applications are also available at any of the Credit Union’s branch locations. Completed applications must be returned no later than March 1, 2016 to: ORNL Federal Credit Union (ATTN: Scholarship Committee Chair) at PO Box 365, Oak Ridge, TN 37831.

    Financial Aid is a factor in selecting recipients. All applicants must complete a FAFSA Form for federal student aid coded for the University of Tennessee filed by February 1, 2016. The FAFSA can be found online at www.fafsa.ed.gov or can be picked up at your local high school guidance counselor’s office. Applicants are selected by the UT General Scholarship Committee and will be notified by the University of Tennessee Financial Aid Office by late May or early June.
