2014 James A. Burley, Jr. Scholarship Contest

At this time of year, most college-bound kids and those already in college are immersed in the search for scholarship money. If you are one of these students or are the parent/guardian of one, here’s some news you’ll want to hear.

We now are accepting entries for the James A. Burley, Jr., Scholarship Contest, open only to RTN members and their dependents. The top prize? $5,000!

Each year RTN sponsors this contest, which honors the Credit Union’s former chairman and director James A. Burley, Jr., who served RTN for more than 30 years. Three prizes are awarded–$5,000 for first place; $3,000 for second place; and $2,000 for third place.

You’re eligible to apply if you are, or your dependent is, a full-time college student or will be a full-time college student in the Fall of 2014. You need to be an RTN member in good standing as of April 1, 2014.
