Scholarship Awards

We have two scholarship awards available to our membership. Each is a $5000, one-time award:

Our Tom Jones Scholarship is for graduating high school students. (Graduating in June 2020): Tom Jones Scholarship Application

Our Fritz vonAppen Scholarship is for either graduate or undergraduate students. Scholarship — Fritz vonAppen ApplicationScholarship — VonAppen Application

If you are a graduating high school student, you may apply for both scholarships but you can only receive one of the two awards. Please print, complete and return the application(s) to: Pacific Cascade Scholarships, Pacific Cascade Federal Credit Union, 1075 Oak Street, Eugene OR 97401, by May 15, 2020. Follow the instructions on the applications. Be sure to send in all documents requested on the application. You may also pick up an application at your favorite PCFCU branch.  The scholarships are due May 15, 2020. All applicants will be informed of whether their application was awarded a scholarship or if they were not selected, in writing through postal mail, by June 1, 2020.

Applicants must be PCFCU members (not simply a child of a current member).

Both Scholarships are weighted by the following criteria in order of importance:

  • Community Service (giving of oneself)– demonstrate (in words) how you have contributed to bettering our community;
  • Academics– (prove you are serious about your education as demonstrated by your GPA); and
  • Financial need.

Both scholarships are named after past Pacific Cascade Federal Credit Union board chairpersons that were very involved in bettering our community. That is why we give community service, the highest weight in our ranking process.
