Scholarships

Every year, First Credit Union proudly awards scholarships to local students who are planning to further their education. The total amount of scholarships awarded is based upon a percentage of the total assets of the credit union, so the more growth the organization has, the higher the scholarships will be. Priority will be given to First Credit Union members.

Students interested in applying for a credit union scholarship should do so through the application guidelines for their community.
