First Community CU Expanding Scholarship Program

Jamestown, ND - For more than 20 years First Community Credit Union (FCCU) has provided college scholarships to its members. With their recent merger with Citizens Community Credit Union, they’re expanding their scholarship program to include a total of 13 multi-year scholarships – one for each of the colleges where FCCU has branch locations.

FCCU recently announced that they are now accepting scholarship applications for graduating high school seniors. In 2018, the credit union will award eight $4,000 scholarships and five $2,000 scholarships, which are $1,000 per year. There are 13 scholarships available for the following schools in which FCCU has branch locations: Bismarck State College, Cankdeska Cikana Community College, Concordia College, Lake region State College, Mayville State University, Minnesota State University Moorhead, North Dakota State College of Science, North Dakota State University, Northland Community and Technical College, University of Jamestown, University of Mary, University of North Dakota and Valley City State University. In addition, a limited number of individual one-year scholarships will be available to any college, university, or trade school of the student’s choice at the value of $1,000.

“We are very excited to be able to offer multi-year scholarships to additional colleges this year,” said Becky Pergotski, FCCU foundation board member. She continues, “We’re proud of this program and the amazing opportunities it presents. In 2017 alone, this foundation provided $40,000 worth of scholarships for our members.”

For full details and to access the online application, visit their website at myfccu.com. The deadline to submit is March 16, 2018. FCCU began an education foundation with earnings to fund scholarship opportunities, including multi-year scholarships for members of the credit union in 2014.

During its 78 year history, First Community Credit Union has grown to be North Dakota’s largest Credit Union. As a credit union, FCCU is owned by its members. This is different than other financial institutions which are owned by a select group of stockholders. The Credit Union's profits are returned to the members in the form of better services, accounts, and favorable rates on savings and loans.
