To be eligible for a CUNA Finance Council scholarship, you must meet the following requirements:
- Your credit union must demonstrate a financial need, as determined by the selection committee.
- You must be a member of CUNA Lending Council.
- You must be a full-time employee of your credit union.
Requests must be for qualifying programs and events.
You can receive one CUNA scholarship per calendar year across all CUNA Councils. Maximum scholarship per calendar year cannot exceed two scholarships or $2,500 per credit union.
Recipients may receive a scholarship for two consecutive years, but must then wait at least one year before re-applying. Once a recipient has received three scholarships in total, future applications will only be considered once other applicants have been evaluated and are not guaranteed to be approved regardless of financial situation, need or availability of funds.
