Save money by applying for a scholarship!

The financial costs of pursuing higher education add up quickly. As a not-for-profit financial cooperative, we’re here to help you succeed.

That’s why we’re partnering with the Minnesota Credit Union Foundation Scholarship Council (FSC) again to offer $18,000 in scholarships exclusively to members of Minnesota Credit Unions. A total of 18 applicants will be awarded a scholarship of $1,000. Last year MEFCU had five members win scholarships!

This years essay question is "Who has inspired you for your personal growth, to make a positive difference and why?"

Scholarship Eligibility
