About the Scholarship

John F. Condon Memorial Scholarship

Hanscom Federal Credit Union has established scholarship programs dedicated in honor of a former member of the Board of Directors, John F. Condon.  The programs include scholarships for graduating high school seniors (including GAP year graduates) who are members of Hanscom FCU and dedicated scholarships for graduating seniors of the Lowell High School and the Bedford/Billerica Memorial High School Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps Programs. Mr. Condon provided the credit union with invaluable guidance and leadership.  He served our membership faithfully for 26 years and will continue to do so through the scholarships that bear his name.

The application window for 2019 is now closed. This year's scholarship recipients will be announced at the Annual Meeting on May 4, 2019.
