Scholarship programs

CUNA Marketing & Business Development Council scholarship programs

Each year, CUNA Marketing & Business Development 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 application process for the Marketing & Business Development Council Conference is closed. Scholarships are still available for the Digital Marketing School (scholarship deadline April 1, 2024) and the Marketing & Business Development Certification School (scholarship deadline July 19, 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.
