About the Club F.I.T. Scholarship

Each year, Kirtland FCU is proud to award three scholarships to deserving graduates heading to college in the fall.
This year, applicants will have a chance to win one of three scholarships: $2,000, $1,500, or $1,000.

This year, in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have decided to also award a fourth place scholarship
in recognition of the uniquely difficult circumstances faced by the graduating class of 2021.

To be eligible, applicants must be accepted to a two- or four-year college and enroll in the Fall 2021 semester.
Applicants should be members of Kirtland FCU or sponsored by a current member.
