Scholarships and Grants
Education is very important to us. After all, we are founded by teachers who put their money together to help each other during times of financial need. Foothill continues that tradition by offering our members an opportunity to apply for an Educator Advancement Scholarship or Medical Career Advancement Scholarship to help further their education or career.
Career Advancement Scholarships
Foothill will be awarding two scholarships, each up to $3,000 to two select members looking to advance his/her career in the education or medical field. If chosen, the award will be paid directly to the recipient(s) at our annual Ambassador Breakfast.
Completed applications must be received no later than October 25, 2019. No exceptions.
Any Foothill Credit Union member who is pursuing or advancing a career in education or medical field may apply for this scholarship. Each applicant must have a Foothill Credit Union account in his/her name.
If you are not a member, you may open an account and become eligible to apply. If selected, you must become a member before receiving the award funds. Applicants who are not members for at least three months must wait until this period has ended to be awarded.
Foothill Credit Union employees, Board and Committee members and their families are not eligible to receive this award.

- Short answer questions of 150 words or less.
