The LGFCU Scholarship, which helps Credit Union members pay for college and trade school expenses, is now the "Local Foundation Scholarship."
The renaming coincides with the Local Foundation of North Carolina inheriting administration of both the college and professional development scholarship programs of LGFCU. The Foundation is an organization supported by LGFCU and its sister Credit Union, Civic FCU.
While the college scholarship name is changing, the professional development scholarships will keep their current names. They include:
- The UNC School of Government Scholarship for members who work in local or municipal government
- The Administrative Officers Management Program (AOMP) and Law Enforcement Executive Program (LEEP) scholarships for members who are North Carolina municipal law enforcement personnel
