    Our commitment to education doesn't just mean helping members make sound decisions with their finances. We're also dedicated to helping young people in our Credit Union community further their studies.

    That's why we're pleased to announce that BCU is once again granting up to 20 scholarships to high school seniors in the amount of $1,500 each.

    Are you the perfect candidate? See the Eligibility and Process tab for details.

     

    Scholarships aren't the only way BCU can help pay for college. A student loan from the Credit Union can fill in gaps not covered by other forms of financial assistance. With low rates, flexible repayment terms, and no origination fee or pre-payment penalties, private student loans are one more example of how We've Got Your Back.
