MADISON, Wis. (3/14/14)--With a $20,000 grant, CUNA Mutual Group will fund a scholarship offered through the World Council of Credit Unions' (WOCCU) Women's Global Leadership Network.
The WOCCU Global Women's Leadership Network Scholarship aims to further the careers of emerging credit union leaders by supporting projects that solve a problem or meet a credit union and/or a community need.
Scholarship candidates who apply can submit their project description at www.CUwomen.org. Successful projects will address a credit union or community need and further the mission of the applicant's credit union. The application deadline is March 28.
Beyond the scholarship, CUNA Mutual Group has expanded its support of WOCCU initiatives and recently became the only diamond-level supporter of the organization.
"Our expanded support to a longtime partner like WOCCU is a natural extension of CUNA Mutual Group's commitment to credit unions worldwide," said Faye Patzner, CUNA Mutual Group executive vice president and chief administrative officer.
Scholarship candidates will be selected to attend the 2014 Global Women's Leadership Forum and World Credit Union Conference in Australia, July 25-30.
