Scholarship Program

Taking Care of Your Future

Credit Unions are unique in the ways that they conduct business and serve their members. What we celebrate as the Credit Union difference extends far beyond our financial services. As member owned co-operatives, credit unions have a long, distinguished history of reflecting the strength of their co-operative values in forging stronger communities. The Police Credit Union is pleased to offer a new scholarship program for children and grandchildren of our members. Just one more way your Credit Union is taking care of our own!
