Every year, the Florida Credit Union awards scholarships to students based on their scholastic record, future potential, leadership, initiative, character, dependability, integrity and financial needs. Students are eligible to apply if they, or their parents/guardian, are FCU members, and if the students are actively enrolled or plan to enroll in undergraduate college courses within the calendar year.
The 2023 scholarship application submission deadline is February 3, 2023:
The Servin-Ellis Scholarship Fund was originally established in memory of the first treasurer/manager of FCU, Oscar Servin. In 1997, the fund was renamed to also honor Dr. Jonnie Ellis, a board member who served from 1987 to 1997 and served as Chair from 1993 to 1996. The scholarship fund is awarded annually in May and is divided among more than one recipient.
The Dr. John C. Rawls Scholarship was established in honor of Dr. John C. Rawls, a member of the Board of Directors since 1957. Over his 55 years of service, Dr. Rawls served on the board as President, Vice President, Secretary, Chair and Treasurer. During a nine-month period in the 1990s, he served as the interim CEO of the credit union until a new CEO could be found.
