Call Federal Launches New Scholarship Program For Community College Students

Back to News

In recognition of community colleges and the role they play in transforming the lives of their students, Call Federal announces an expansion to its annual scholarship offerings, granting two additional awards for students enrolled in or intending to enroll in two-year programs, with preference given to those pursuing technical degrees or career-specific certifications.

In its initial phase, the scholarships will be made available to Call Federal members who are students or prospective students of John Tyler and J. Sargeant Reynolds community colleges. Credit union representatives met with administrators from each of these schools to assess their students’ needs, determine the most appropriate way to roll out such a program, and gain the buy-in of these institutions for this pilot phase.

Established in 1962 as a credit union founded by and for the employees of Philip Morris and later expanded to serve the needs of nearby tradesmen and manufacturers, Call Federal has a longstanding tradition of helping hard-working Richmonders achieve their goals and improve their lives with the right mix of financial products and member-focused service. Likewise, Virginia’s community colleges are a place of opportunity for those who would invest in their future through education and training. In addition to deepening the relationship with these vital institutions, Call Federal looks forward to supporting two additional student-members through this scholarship offering and will be measuring the interest in the new program with an eye to future expansion.

You can access our scholarship applications by visiting any Call Federal branch location or online at
