Applications are now open for Monroe Community College students seeking work and scholarships from ESL Federal Credit Union.

The deadline for the ESL/MCC Scholars program is Oct. 18.

Students in MCC’s School of Business & Entrepreneurial Studies are eligible for the program, which provides financial assistance for educational costs, and a part-time job providing experience in banking and financial services.

To be considered, applicants must have a minimum grade-point average of 2.5 and have permanent work eligibility status in the United States.

The program will accept up to five students in November, with orientation and training scheduled for January 2020. The recipients will receive a $1,000 scholarship for a semester and a part-time job as a teller in an ESL branch or the downtown headquarters.

“The ESL/MCC Scholars program opens doors for Monroe Community College students interested in careers in banking and financial services,” said MCC Vice President of Student Services Lloyd Homes. “In addition to earning while they learn, students gain valuable, professional experience working for a leading employer in our community.”

Maureen Wolfe, senior vice president, Human Resources & Community Impact, ESL Federal Credit Union, also sits in the board of the MCC Foundation. She said, “This earn-and-learn scholars program is a great way to support talent development in our community. Students have shared how much they appreciate the opportunity to work with mentors and gain professional working experience through this program.”
