Commack resident Michael Brodsky was one of 20 students randomly selected to receive a $2,500 scholarship from Island Federal Credit Union.
Brodsky, a graduate of Commack High School, will be able to use the scholarship money to continue his education at the University of Pennsylvania.
Since the inception of the Scholarship Program in 1992, Island FCU has given away more than 230 scholarships, totaling more than $290,000 in awards to local high school seniors. This year, Island FCU doubled their High School scholarship program to $50,000, with the intention of helping Long Island families face the rising cost of college.
“We are proud to announce this year that Island FCU has doubled the scholarship program to $50,000. We are hoping the increase will help make the transition to college a little easier and help our Island FCU award winners pursue their education and personal goals. We are very proud of them,” Sears said.
