Arlene Colombini Scholarship

Scholarship applications are now available to graduating high school seniors in our five-county footprint! 


CFCU will be awarding seven $1,000 scholarships! 


Community First’s scholarship program is an effort to aid and support education in Lake, Marin, Mendocino, Napa, and Sonoma counties.

CFCU will award a total of $7,000 in scholarships to local students. 

Students must have a current 3.0 minimum GPA and also have been accepted to a two or four-year college. Students are chosen based on a criterion, along with a personal statement that describes their need for this scholarship and their goals in life.

The scholarship is named for Arlene Colombini in recognition of her 60-plus years of service to CFCU. Arlene continues on as Community First’s longest-serving volunteer and Board Member. 


Deadline: April 7, 2023
