CTFCU Legacy Scholarship Fund - supporting our dreams

At Carolinas Telco Federal Credit Union (CTFCU), we pride ourselves in giving back to our members and the communities we serve. We've partnered with Carolinas Credit Union Foundation to award FOUR individual members with a $1,000 CTFCU Legacy Scholarship.

Congratulations to our 2018 winners!

Devin from Charleston, South Carolinas

A member since 2016, Devin is working towards completing her senior year of undergraduate study. She will then pursue a graduate degree in psychology.
“My most pressing financial goal is a common one - to graduate debt free and with enough savings in order to start my post-graduate future unburdened. This is a daunting goal, but one that can be achieved with the help of my credit union, Carolinas Telco, and its financial services.”


Latisha from Charlotte, North Carolina

A member since 2011, Latisha is excited to complete her senior year of undergraduate study in business while advancing towards new career goals. 
“My credit union can help me make wise financial choices due to the fact that I am considered a member at a credit union versus a customer at another banking institution. Banks are amongst the most profitable companies in America, however by being a member of a credit union, which is a not-for-profit organization my profits are returned to me, and I have access to lower fees, higher dividends and improved services.”
