First Community Credit Union Awarding 15 Scholarships

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 and Agassiz Federal Credit Unions, the credit union is expanding their scholarship program to include a total of 15 multi-year scholarships – one for each of the colleges where FCCU has branch locations.

FCCU announces they are now accepting scholarship applications from graduating high school seniors. In 2019, the credit union will award nine $4,000 scholarships and six $2,000 scholarships, which are $1,000 per year. There are 15 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 Community and Technical College, 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 Minnesota Crookston, 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 2018 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 www.myfccu.com. The deadline to submit applications is March 15, 2019.

During its 80 year history, First Community Credit Union has grown to be North Dakota’s largest credit union, serving 23 communities and more than 45,000 members, and holding over $820M in assets. In 2014, FCCU began an education foundation with earnings to fund scholarship opportunities, including multi-year scholarships for members of the credit union.
