The college scholarships are open to members of the credit union who meet the criteria based on financial need, community involvement, education/ occupational goals, grade point average and other requirements.

The scholarship program, which originated in 1982, was inspired to honor the legacy of the late Msgr. Eugene A. Forbes whose dedication and commitment to encouraging the pursuit of higher education, coupled with the credit union’s philosophy of “people helping people,” continues to be an integral part of Catholic Federal Credit Union.

Since 1982, the Msgr. Forbes Scholarship Committee has awarded $1.96 million dollars and has given out over 4,200 scholarships to students who want to begin or continue their education.
