About our scholarships
We partner with Civic Federal Credit Union and Local Government Federal Credit Union to provide both professional development and student scholarships.
Over many years, the scholarships have provided more than $2.7 million to Credit Union members to further their education. This investment has had a tremendous impact on our municipalities across the state.
