MADISON, Wis. (5/7/10)--The deadline for applications to participate in this year’s World Council of Credit Unions’ (WOCCU) Young Credit Union People (WYCUP) scholarship program is June 7. Five recipients will be recognized at The 1 Credit Union Conference, July 11-14 in Las Vegas. Recipients will receive all-expenses-paid trips to WOCCU’s 2011 World Credit Union Conference in Glasgow, Scotland. The program seeks individuals who have contributed to the development of their credit unions or the credit union movement, and who demonstrate the potential to employ their talents at the international level. Credit unions and credit union organizations that are WOCCU members can nominate leaders for the scholarship, WOCCU said. Nominees must be sponsored by a credit union or credit union organization to attend the conference, be 35 or younger on Jan. 1, and submit a completed nomination form with supporting materials to WOCCU. All nominees will be formally recognized in Las Vegas and invited to participate in events and networking sessions organized throughout the conference for participants under 35. Conference registrants under age 35 also qualify for a discounted registration fee, regardless of whether they compete for the scholarship. For more information, use the link.
