Fellows Advantage Program3

At the NIHFCU, we know it’s often difficult for international fellows to access financial services while in the U.S. Our popular Fellows Advantage Program addresses this need with benefits typically unavailable elsewhere, including:

  • Excellent borrowing opportunities – even for those without established credit

  • Savings and Checking options

  • Tools and resources to help build a positive credit profile and reach your financial goals

  • Complimentary financial counseling available by phone in a variety of languages

Established credit is not required to apply for a loan through the Fellows Advantage Program1. Fellows only need a U.S. social security number to get started. Need advice? Schedule a complimentary, no obligation fellow’s consultation, stop by any branch or call.

As a foreign scientist arriving at NIH, I find it very convenient to have a financial institution right on campus that is tailored to the needs of the people working here!

 

Financial wellness begins and ends with the facts. Here's what you need to know!

1 Fellows with a qualifying credit score can apply and may qualify for loans of larger amounts, other rates, and additional features based on standard guidelines and creditworthiness.

2 APR = annual percentage rate as of September 20, 2018. Final rates and terms for approved applicants depend on credit and payment history, payment method and other factors which may be lawfully considered. All loan rates and terms subject to change without notice. Restrictions may apply.

3 The rate on this loan is variable, based on the dividend rate NIHFCU pays on the account pledged as security for the loan. Certificate-secured loan payoff must not exceed the maturity date of the pledged certificate.
