2020 Scholarship Opportunity Details

One of the biggest ways Section 705 Federal Credit Union gives back to our membership is through our scholarship opportunities each year. This form of giving back allows our members preparing for their careers to have a cushion. Getting a degree or certified in a trade is extremely important, but also expensive. The credit union understands that and wants to support you in making your dreams come true! Below are all the details of applying.
