Recognizing Outstanding Students

Apple FCU Foundation opens doors to higher education.

Apple Scholars

Our young people deserve every opportunity to excel. But for many capable students, the rising cost of higher education means that the promise of a brighter future can go unfulfilled. For these students, scholarships create life-changing opportunities to realize the dream of higher education.

The Apple Scholars program recognizes outstanding students who are Apple Federal Credit Union members and have made an impact on their family, school, or community. Scholarships are awarded each May to graduating high school seniors and can be used for attendance at accredited four-year and two-year colleges and universities.

2019 Apple Scholars, Lydia and DeMarkus share their stories

Lydia is president of the “Best Buddies” organization, which nurtures friendships between youngsters with and without developmental disabilities.


DeMarkus is determined to be the first in his family to graduate from college

with a four-year degree and go to grad school. He is smart and hardworking, a poised impromptu speaker and active in Future Business Leaders of America.
