We are excited to be able to partner with schools within the communities we serve to provide scholarships to those students continuing their education. MMFCU has helped students fund their education for over a decade, by working with guidance counselors from schools in our field of membership. Credit Unions are able to return profits back to our members in many different ways and scholarships are one way we are able to help.
