With college costs soaring in California and beyond, SFPCU continues to support our members and their families by awarding four $1,000 college scholarships every year to students committed to enhancing their education. Every year, SFPCU provides four of these scholarships to students who prove their academic excellence and contribute to the improvement of their local community.
The application period for our 2016 Scholarship Award has ended. Please check back later this year for information on our 2017 Scholarship Award applications.
We sincerely thank all applicants for their interest and wish you the best in your educational journeys!
