LGFCU helps you pay for college or graduate school expenses with our scholarships.
Each year, we award 120 one-year scholarships to graduating high school students and students attending colleges, universities and graduate schools.
Applicants must be members of Local Government Federal Credit Union (applicant must have an individual account or hold a joint account with a parent) and in good standing. All scholarships are for $1,000, payable in one installment to the school, and may be applied to tuition, textbooks, computers or other fees.
The winners, who are selected by a committee of the Carolinas Credit Union Foundation, are announced in July. The application deadline is in February each year.
If you have questions regarding the application process, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
STATUS: Winners will be announced in July.
Other financing methods
The Credit Union has several ways to help pay for expenses related to elementary, secondary, and post-secondary education. Check out the benefits of a Coverdell Education Savings Account to cover these costs. If you’d like to talk about other ways to finance your education, call our Financial Advisors at 877.367.5428. They’ll be happy to help you plan ahead.
As a federally chartered credit union, LGFCU cannot participate in the College Foundation of North Carolina programs, but their website is a good resource for information on many college-related topics such as financial aid, grants and additional scholarships. Visit www.cfnc.org.
