FUSE Share Certificate
It's easy to save for college and earn your child a scholarship* with FUSE (Funding-Ur-Student's-Education) Share Certificate.
Save for your child's education. We'll reward you for it.
Are you saving for the college education of a child 22 years of age or younger? If you are, or if you're not doing so but need to, we'd like to help. We'll provide your child with a scholarship* if you open a FUSE Share Certificate for them.
Not Your Standard Share Certificates
A FUSE Share Certificate involves 5 years of multiple deposits: 52 weekly, 26 biweekly, or 12 monthly contributions. You have three easy ways to make them:
- Direct deposit
- Payroll allotments
- Transfers from shares
At maturity, the scholarship will post to the certificate and the certificate will renew for the share term unless redeemed. The then-current dividend rate at the time of maturity will apply excluding dividends.
Would a $1,500 Scholarship* Help?
Each scholarship* will be equivalent to 10% of the amount that has accumulated in the Share Certificate at the time of maturity, excluding dividend. For example, if your balance is $10,000, we'll award your child a $1,000 scholarship at maturity. The maximum scholarship is $1,500 per Share Certificate.
As with our other certificates, there's a penalty for early redemption. In addition, no scholarship* will be awarded if the Share Certificate is redeemed prior to the end of the 5-year term.
* Scholarship awarded at maturity contingent upon no early redemption of the certificate. The maximum scholarship amount is $1,500 per Share Certificate.
