$16,000 in Scholarships Available for Credit Union Members!


The financial costs of pursuing a higher education add up quickly. As a not-for-profit financial institution, we are here to help you, our members, succeed. That’s why we are once again partnering with the Minnesota Credit Union Foundation Scholarship Council (FSC) to offer $16,000 in scholarships exclusively to members of Minnesota Credit Unions.

Since 1997, the FSC has awarded over $200,000 in scholarships to Minnesota credit union members. Two MEFCU members were awarded FSC scholarships in 2021. Congratulations to Allysa L. and Kari E.!
