PFCU Scholarship Program

You are our best investment

Philadelphia Federal Credit Union is pleased to offer an Annual Scholarship Program to award selected young members with funds for their continuing education.

PFCU created the Scholarship Program in 2004 to further our philosophy of giving back to members and the communities that we serve. Our commitment to the young leaders in our communities demonstrates a firm belief in their ability to pursue their life's desires and dreams.

Four $2,500 scholarships are awarded to high school seniors that are members in good standing of the Credit Union. Applications require transcripts, a teacher's reference and two completed essay questions.

We're now accepting applications for the 2017 Scholarship Program. Applications must be postmarked by Friday, April 28. Download the 2017 Scholarship Program Packet.
