Reflecting the mission statement of FCCU, "To help our members be in a better financial position than when we met them," FCCU will be offering a scholarship program to help our members achieve their educational dreams.

For the 2023-2024 school year, we will be awarding a total of $10,000 in scholarship money to members heading off to a 4-year university or a 2-year technical or trade school. Five current high school seniors will be selected to receive $2,000!

Scholarship Criteria

To be considered for a scholarship, the student must meet the following criteria:

  2. Be enrolled in a Jefferson, Walworth, Rock, Dodge, Dane or Waukesha County high school. Students participating in a home-based educational program, privately operated correspondence or virtual school must reside in the qualifying counties listed above.
