Since the inception of the program in 2003, TCCU has awarded over 50 scholarships to graduating high school seniors and returning undergraduate students.

Scholarships are awarded for the academic year (beginning in the fall semester), based on student’s membership in the credit union and an essay submission. Scholarships are not based on the student’s grades or extra-curricular activities.

The number of scholarships awarded is based on the number of applications received.

Awards are paid directly to the student’s school of choice, for discretionary use to assist with educational expenses.
