Fort Financial is committed to developing tomorrow’s workforce today. To support our members in tackling the rising cost of college education, we offer an annual scholarship competition awarded to eligible students.
Who is eligible to apply?
- High school seniors who will be graduating and attending college this calendar year and who will be considered full-time status. Students must be in the upper 25% of their graduating class.

- Students and person(s) responsible for their support must be Fort Financial members and be in good standing with the credit union.
What type of things are considered in the selection process?
The scholarship committee looks for an overall level of high achievement in the areas of academics and community involvement. In addition, the committee will consider evidence of quality of character, initiative, integrity, concern for others and financial need when selecting scholarship recipients.
