First Commonwealth Federal Credit Union’s Scholarship Program helps graduating high school senior members with the increasing costs of higher education.  Five scholarships will be awarded per year. The winners will receive $1,000, which will be paid after enrollment verification*.  Applications will be accepted only until January 31, 2018.  Winners will be notified in March and announced at our Annual Meeting. 

Any graduating high school senior planning to attend a two- or four-year college or trade school full time and is a member of First Commonwealth Federal Credit Union is eligible to apply for a scholarship. (Credit Union employees, board members, and their immediate family members are ineligible.)
