Education Loans

The Polish Roman Catholic Union of America (“PRCUA”) does issue Educational Loans to student members attending College, under the following conditions:

  1. Students must be members of the PRCUA. Their membership must be active at least one year prior to applying for a loan.
  2. The Applicant must be the holder of permanent insurance with the PRCUA, in the amount of $5,000.00 or more, with the proviso that the permanent insurance with the PRCUA is not burdened with any debts.
  3. The permanent insurance certificate shall be pledged to the PRCUA as additional security for the payment of the loan when due. If insured for less than $5,000.00, additional insurance must be taken to qualify for the loan.

PLEASE NOTE, THAT MEMBER MUST BE A FULL TIME STUDENT (AT LEAST TWELVE CREDIT HOURS) TO BE ELIGIBLE FOR A LOAN.
An applicant cannot receive more than four such loans. Due to the great demand for these loans, the maximum amount granted to each student is $1,000.00 per school year.

The loans are only applied towards the tuition, if the applicant is approved. The check is made payable to the student and the school. Therefore, these loans can only be given after the student is registered in a College.

THIS IS A LOAN THAT THE STUDENT IS OBLIGATED TO REPAY.
There is no interest charged on these loans for the time the student is in school. Six months after the completion of the regular 4 year college course or if the student leaves school, or in default, interest at 5% will be charged.

The application should be completed in full, signed by the member, and notarized by a Notary Public or signed by the Officers of the Society. Return the application to our office together with the letter of REGISTRATION. The form will then be presented to the Educational Aid Committee for consideration.

COMPLETED APPLICATION must be sent to:
Polish Roman Catholic Union of America
