Qualified applicants for the scholarship program, which includes this year’s recipients, are primary members of Maui FCU in good standing for at least one year. They submitted an application form, an essay or video, along with their acceptance letter to the college of their choice.

“As a credit union, the scholarship program is another way that we give back to our membership,” Fuchigami said. “We are proud to be part of our scholars’ educational journey and we will continue to serve them at every milestone of their careers.”
