Apply by April 30 for an opportunity to learn, share in Costa Rica

The World Council of Credit Unions' International Credit Union Leadership Program offers a great opportunity for credit union professionals from the U.S. to put their skills into action. Scholarships are available to participate in an intensive internship program in Costa Rica from June 9-22, 2013.  Applications are due April 30.


If you're chosen to participate, you'll:

  • Spend two weeks alongside Costa Rican credit union colleagues to find solutions to similar challenges. 


  • Learn firsthand how to better serve an increasingly diverse membership, including youth and low-wealth members. 


  • Exchange ideas, improve problem-solving skills, enhance cultural diversity and practice your foreign language skills. 


The internship program includes credit union internship placement, lodging with a local host family, meal and communication stipends, local transportation and traveler’s insurance. The participant must cover the cost of airfare.


Staff and directors from credit unions, leagues, Corporates, CUNA, CUNA Mutual Group and CUSOs are eligible to apply.


Additional information, including the application, is available from the World Council's website.
