WOCCU Accepting Nominations for Outstanding Young Professionals
Wednesday, February 4, 2015 6:35 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 deadline for WYCUP scholarship applications is June 1.

The scholarship awards and the WYCUP program for young professionals will take place at the 2015 World Credit Union Conference in Denver, Colorado, July 12–15, in collaboration with the Credit Union National Association.

To be eligible for the scholarship, nominees must:

  • Be 35 years of age or younger as of Jan. 1, 2015.
  • 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 2015 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 1.
  • 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 2016 World Credit Union Conference in Ireland. In addition, conference registrants age 35 and younger qualify for a discounted registration fee and can participate in the WYCUP events in Denver, regardless of whether or not they apply for the scholarship.
