College Scholarships Now Available

Do you know a graduating high school senior who is looking for scholarships to help pay for college? First Community Credit Union will again be offering multiple scholarships to members of the Credit Union.

In recent years FCCU created a program that supports our dedication to area communities by reinvesting in 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.

The Credit Union will award seven $4,000 scholarships and two $2,000 scholarships, which are $1,000 per year. There are nine scholarships available for the following schools in which FCCU has branch locations: Bismarck State College, Concordia College, Minnesota State University Moorhead, Mayville State University, North Dakota State University, North Dakota State College of Science, University of Jamestown, University of Mary, and Valley City State University.

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.

We've moved our scholarship application process online. Applications can be created, saved and submitted with our new FCCU Scholarship Application. The deadline to submit an application is March 17, 2017.
