Fort Community Credit Union has announced that they will be awarding $10,000 in scholarship money for the 2019-2020 school year. Five current high school seniors heading off to a 4-year university or a 2-year technical or trade school in the fall, will be selected to receive $2,000. Reflecting the mission statement of FCCU, “To help our members be in a better financial position than when we met them,” the scholarship program was designed in 2018 to help their members achieve their educational dreams.

To be considered for a scholarship, the student must meet the following criteria:

• Be enrolled in a Jefferson, Walworth, Rock, Dodge, Dane or Waukesha County high school. Students participating in a home-based educational program, privately operated correspondence or virtual school must reside in the qualifying counties listed above. Applicants attending these programs must also provide proof of enrollment with the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction for the 2018-2019 school year, ACT or SAT scores, and any records relating to curriculum and academic progress.

• Be eligible for graduation at the end of the 2019-2020 school year.

• Applications must be submitted online by March 1st, 2020 along with the high school transcript through first semester senior year and a letter of recommendation from a non-related teacher, coach, school administrator, community member or employer.
