We want you to succeed
FirstOntario is committed to helping our young Members achieve more than just financial success.
When you make the important decision to go to college or university, your studies, not your bank account, should be your first priority.
Here's how we can help
FirstOntario offers six education awards valued at $1,000 each to those who exemplify leadership qualities, community engagement and the drive to make our communities better.
Not a Member yet? That’s ok (but you’re missing out!). We want to help you too.
Here's what you need to know
Applications for the 2021 Education Awards are now closed and reopen again in spring 2022.
You do not have to be a Member of FirstOntario Credit Union to apply. If you are a successful recipient, you agree to visit a FirstOntario branch in person to become a Member in order to receive your award.
