ST. JOHN VALLEY and BANGOR, Maine (Feb. 20, 2020) – As a financial institution invested in their communities and neighbors, Acadia Federal Credit Union periodically offers beneficial programs to their membership.

Acadia FCU is pleased to announce they will award $6,000 in scholarships to area high school seniors.

    This scholarship will help me to start my degree in nutrition to one day become a registered dietitian. I plan on attending University of New Hampshire in Durham. Thank you for your time.

    I was wondering as to how I can fill out my SAT scores on the scholarship application, as with my SAT scores, the reading and writing portions are one combined score, not two separate scores.

      Hi Kaitlyn,
      We will make a revision to the scholarship application to allow for this. I’ll let you know as soon as the change has been made. Thank you for bringing this to our attention. 🙂

        We have updated the scholarship form, so it should be easier for you to complete the SAT portion of the application.
