Building Bright Financial Futures

At First Commerce, we are committed to empowering generations and transforming the communities we serve. One way we do that is by helping to build bright financial futures through our MyWay Scholarship program. We will award multiple $1,000 scholarships in May to students pursuing degrees in higher education, and who demonstrate excellence in school and beyond. To be eligible for consideration, applicants must be between 17-29 years old and have a First Commerce checking account. If you are not an FCCU member, you may open a checking account and be immediately eligible to apply. Scholarships will be paid directly to the student’s institution of higher learning and can be used for expenses such as tuition, fees, and books.
Hurry! The deadline to apply is Friday, April 12.More FCCU in the Community
