R.I.A. Federal Credit Union staff and Board of Directors would like to congratulate the winners of our Annual Scholarship Awards. Our winners were each awarded $1,000 for the 2019-2020 school year. Over the past 20 years, a total of over $58,000 has been given to help further the education of our outstanding graduates. We would like to take this opportunity to wish all of our 2019 graduating seniors the best of luck in their future endeavors.
We've been really busy since the weather has warmed up! In mid-May, a large group of us HeartWalked in support of the American Heart Association (AHA). We raised over $21,000 at our 5th annual Honor Flight of the Quad Cities golf outing.
Unfortunately, warmer weather brought snow melt, combined with a lot of rain, which created catastrophic flooding for many communities in our area. We’re lucky to work for a company that let several of our employees go help with sandbagging. In addition, our members contributed over $550 that we were able to donate to the American Red Cross in support of the flood efforts.

Before you apply for a private student loan, you should ask yourself a couple of questions:
