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 directly to the school the student will be attending. Winners will be required to submit an invoice prior to payment being issued.
Applications for the 2021 scholarships are now closed. The 2021 scholarship winners will be publicly announced at First Commonwealth's Annual Meeting on April 21st.
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.)
