Apply this fall for a Professional Development scholarship

by Christine Henzig, Director of Communications Sep 12, 2018

Here's an opportunity to receive a professional boost, thanks to Foundation scholarships.


Professional Development Scholarships defray the cost of a training or program offered by a credit union system partner, within award guidelines. Popular uses for the funds include CUNA Management School (and other CUNA schools) and the National Credit Union Foundation's Development Education (CU philosophy immersion) program. Separate scholarships will continue for CUNA Management School and the Development Education program.

The scholarships will continue to be awarded on the basis of need, impact of the program on the credit union, and the applicant's involvement in and commitment to the credit union Movement.


Two distinct awards will be considered, one of up to $2,000 for a Young Professional (age 35 and younger) and another for up to $2,000 for any full-time credit union employee regardless of age.  


The application cycle is open from September 15 to October 31.


Professional development is a core component of The Foundation's mission.

Wisconsin credit unions come together as a single League to Unite for Good; we remove barriers, increase awareness and foster service excellence. All of these steps help more Americans to see credit unions as their best financial partner and regard their credit union as their primary financial institution.
