Invested in your dreams for higher education
At Florida Credit Union, we believe in the power of educational opportunities for our young members. We started out serving teachers, so education has always been a priority for us. Every year, we award three scholarships to students based on their scholastic record, future potential, leadership, initiative, character, dependability, integrity and financial needs. Students are eligible to apply if they, or their parents/guardian, are FCU members, and if the students are actively enrolled or plan to enroll in undergraduate college courses within the calendar year.

The Servin-Ellis Scholarship Fund was originally established in memory of the first treasurer/manager of FCU, Oscar Servin. In 1997, the fund was renamed to also honor Dr. Jonnie Ellis, a board member who served from 1987 to 1997 and served as Chair from 1993 to 1996. The scholarship fund is awarded annually in May and is divided among more than one recipient.
Who is eligible?
The award is open to any high school senior who is enrolled or plans to enroll in the current year in undergraduate study. Students interested in applying must first qualify by having a parent or guardian who is an FCU member or by being a FCU member themselves.

During a nine-month period in the 1990s, he served as the interim CEO of the credit union until a new CEO could be found.
