Scholarship programs

CUNA Finance Council scholarship programs

Each year, CUNA Finance Council offers scholarships to eligible credit union staff. The Scholarship Committee will award recipients based on specific scholarship criteria.

Scholarships will be awarded up to $2,500 and can be used for combined expenses related to the program. Scholarships will be approved prior to the event but reimbursed after proof of attendance and receipts for out-of-pocket expenses are provided. The scholarship deadline is April 4, 2024.

Take advantage of this opportunity to participate with your peers from around the country. Scholarship recipients will be reimbursed up to $2,500 for conference registration, hotel and airfare expenses. Any fees or expenses that exceed the awarded amount are the responsibility of the recipient and/or their credit union. Scholarship recipients for the conference must stay at the hotel in which the conference takes place.

To be eligible for a Finance scholarship, you must meet the following requirements:

  1. Requests must be for the Finance Council Conference or approved CPD schools.
