America First Credit Union Awarding Scholarships to High School Seniors and College Students


Riverdale, Utah – March 5, 2020 – America First Credit Union (AFCU) is calling for submissions for its America First Charitable Foundation Scholarship Program. The credit union will be awarding ten $1,000 scholarships to graduating high school seniors and undergraduate students at two- and four-year technical colleges or universities who share our passion for helping others.

The America First Charitable Foundation is looking for candidates who embody a people-helping-people philosophy. Those who play an active role in giving back to their community, whether through volunteering or other meaningful contributions of time, effort, and care are encouraged to apply.

Applicants are required to submit their hours of community service, grade point average, and current transcript. They must also submit a short essay on how their community service exemplifies the credit union philosophy of people helping people.

This will be the second year of AFCU’s scholarship program. Last year the credit union awarded more than $80,000 worth of scholarships to 80 deserving college bound seniors and undergraduate college students to celebrate 80 years serving members.

The scholarship application can be found and submitted on AFCU’s website. Submissions are due by March 31 and winning members will be notified by May 29.
