Calling Young CU Leaders for World Council International Scholarship Program
Friday, January 31, 2014 6:30 AM

The World Council of Credit Unions is accepting nominations from its member organizations for the World Council Young Credit Union People (WYCUP) scholarship program, an international networking and educational opportunity for promising credit union leaders. The nomination deadline is June 16, 2014. The program and awards ceremony will take place at the 2014 World Credit Union Conference in Gold Coast, Australia, July 27–30, 2014.

The WYCUP program seeks individuals who are 35 or younger, passionate about credit unions and interested in networking with a tight-knit group of young leaders from around the world to exchange their experiences in the industry. 

"Investing in young people means investing in your credit union's future," said Brian Branch, World Council president and CEO. "WYCUP provides an opportunity to strengthen movements worldwide by exposing this group to new ideas about the most critical issues facing credit unions in and outside their countries."

To be eligible for the scholarship, nominees must:

  • Be 35 years of age or younger as of January 1, 2014.
  • Demonstrate leadership, personal commitment and the potential to significantly influence credit unions in and outside their country.
  • Be sponsored by their credit union or credit union organization to attend the 2014 World Credit Union Conference. World Council members include organizations affiliated with any national organization belonging to World Council.
  • Submit a completed nomination form and supporting materials by June 16.
  • Not have been a previous WYCUP scholarship recipient.
  • Not be a World Council employee.

WYCUP scholarships will be awarded to five recipients for an all-expense-paid trip to the 2015 World Credit Union Conference in Denver, USA. In addition, conference registrants age 40 and younger qualify for a discounted registration fee and can participate in the joint WYCUP/Emerging Leaders program with Customer Owned Banking Association in Australia, regardless of whether or not they apply for the scholarship.
