LGFCU Scholarship

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 March 4, 2016.

If you have questions regarding the application process, email us at scholarships@lgfcu.org.

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 education costs, call or visit your local branch to make an appointment with a Financial Counselor.

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.
