Apply for our Five Star FCU Scholarship

In May, Five Star of Maryland Federal Credit Union will award one $1,000 scholarship to a member attending college (freshman through senior year) or trade school full-time in Fall 2020. Applicants will submit a 250-word (minimum) essay on this topic: How can banking at Five Star Federal Credit Union help you throughout your lifetime?


Due to school facilities being closed, if you can’t get a copy of your report card or transcripts, that requirement will be waived even though it’s on the application. We are also extending the deadline to allow more time for mailed copies: entries must be received at the Maiden Choice branch or by mail or fax by April 10, 2020.

This year’s scholarship recipient will be announced in May. For details, please visit a branch or use this application PDF.

Five Star FCU members are also encouraged to apply for a Credit Union Foundation of MD & DC Scholarship.
