WEST ORANGE, NJ — High school seniors are invited to apply for a 2018 Atlantic Federal Credit Union scholarship. Three $1,000 scholarships will be awarded to students seeking post-secondary education at a four-year college, technical school or community college.

Atlantic Federal, founded in 1935, offers a full array of personal and small business banking products. Because it puts people before profit, loan rates are lower, savings rates are higher and there are less fees overall.
Accounts are insured to $500,000 with $250,000 provided by the National Credit Union Administration and $250,000 from private insurance. IRA accounts are separately insured to $500,000.
In addition to West Orange, Atlantic Federal has branches in Kenilworth and Newark.
The Credit Union offers the latest in banking technology including mobile banking, remote deposit and online account and loan applications. As a participating credit union in a national network of 30,000 surcharge-free ATMs and 5,000 shared branches, Atlantic Federal members have more convenient access to their money than most traditional bank customers.
