    First Community Credit Union Scholarship: Investing in Our Youth

    FCCU has a program that supports our dedication to area communities by investing in our youth.

    We donated $1 million into a scholarship foundation to provide additional scholarship dollars to graduating high school students. The earnings from the foundation go to fund scholarship opportunities, including multi-year scholarships for members of the credit union for years to come. In 2021 alone, our Education Foundation funded $60,000 in scholarships to our members. This year our Credit Union will award ten $4,000 scholarships and five $2,000 scholarships, which are $1,000 per year. In addition, a limited number of individual one-year scholarships will be available to any college, university, or trade school of the student's choice at the value of $1,000.
