Arlene Colombini Scholarship

CFCU will be awarding four $1,000 scholarships!

Arlene Colombini Scholarships totaling $4,000 are awarded to Lake and Mendocino County high school and/or community college students each year.

Students must have a 3.0 minimum GPA and be enrolled in a college or university with 12 units or more. Students are chosen based on this criterion, along with a personal statement that describes their need for this scholarship and their goals in life.
