VFCU has increased its educational scholarships from to $2,000 from $1,000. Students of any age who have been accepted to, or are enrolled in, an accredited undergraduate program at a college, trade school, or university for the Fall 2012 or Spring 2013 semesters are eligible to apply. Applicants must be VFCU members (Newsline Express Feb. 3).
