Global Women's Leadership Network Accepting Scholarship Applications
Thursday, March 13, 2014 6:35 AM

World Council of Credit Unions invites eligible women credit union leaders to apply for the 2014 Global Women's Leadership Network scholarship. The scholarship champions emerging women credit union leaders through access to a network of credit union professional expertise. The application deadline is March 28, 2014.

The Global Women's Leadership Network seeks emerging women leaders who are committed to making a difference in their credit union movements. The scholarship will support candidates' projects that further the vision and mission of the Network.

Interested women should submit their applications, including a project description. Successful projects will foster the success of the applicant's organization by solving a problem or meeting a credit union and/or community need. Examples include strengthening the capacity of women leaders in the organization and expanding financial services to underserved community members.

Selected candidates will attend the 2014 Global Women's Leadership Forum and World Credit Union Conference, which will take place in Gold Coast, Australia, July 25–30. During the 2014 Leadership Forum, selected candidates will present their projects to Network members, who will vote on which candidates will receive Network support for the implementation of their project. Those chosen will carry out their project from August 2014 through June 2015 and will return to the 2015 Global Women's Leadership Forum in Denver, USA, to present their project results.

To be eligible for the scholarship, applicants must be female emerging leaders in the global credit union movement, which include young professionals and leaders from a developing credit union movement. Successful candidates must demonstrate the ability to effectively implement their proposed project and suggest appropriate engagement from the Network, such as volunteers, training internships, etc.

Scholarships are made possible through funding provided by annual Network membership donations and sponsorships, such as that provided by CUNA Mutual, a Founding Level Supporter of the Network.

Scholarship applications and project descriptions must be sent to by March 28, 2014. Scholarship offers will be made to successful candidates by April 4. For complete details about the scholarship criteria and awards, please visit For questions, please contact
