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 2022-2023 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!

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

  1. Be the primary owner of an active account (savings or checking) at Fort Community Credit Union for a minimum of 3 months. Current FCCU staff, directors and scholarship committee members and their immediate family members are not eligible.
  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.  Applicants attending these programs must also provide proof of enrollment with the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction for the 2022-2023 school year, ACT or SAT scores (if available), and any records relating to curriculum and academic progress.
  3. Be eligible for graduation at the end of the 2022-2023 school year.
  4. Applications must be submitted online by March 1, 2023 along with the high school transcript through first semester senior year and a letter of recommendation from a non-related teacher, coach, school administrator, community member or employer.

Please complete the application between January 1 and March 1, 2023.
