The Municipal Credit Union last week named Ryan Kim of Little Neck as the 2019 Willie James Memorial Scholarship Winner. The Stuyvesant High School student, who will graduate this month, will use the $5,000 to study journalism and political science at Northwestern University’s Medill School of Journalism.

With the help of the New York Credit Union Association, the 2019 MCU Scholarship Winners were selected from a competitive pool of more than 350 applications. Applicants were evaluated on academic performance, extracurricular activities, community service and involvement, letters of recommendation and an essay expressing personal goals.

The annual MCU Scholarship Program is part of the credit union’s long-standing corporate commitment to youth education across the greater New York City area. Since its inception 24 years ago, the program has awarded nearly $1 million to graduating high school seniors.

Eligibility for the 2019 MCU Scholarship Program was open to an MCU member, a child, or a grandchild of a member in good standing.

Established in 1916, the credit union is the oldest one in New York State. The MCU is headquartered in Manhattan. In Queens, it has branches in Springfield Gardens, Elmhurst, St. Albans, Flushing, Corona and Kew Gardens Hills.
