SCHOLARSHIP

Take the path less traveled.


Connect your career to a world of opportunities through the WYCUP Scholarship.

WYCUP began as a scholarship program in 2001. Since then, it has awarded 111 scholarships for an all-expenses-paid trip to attend the World Credit Union Conference. No other events compare to the World Credit Union Conference when it comes to connecting with the pulse and passion of our global movement of financial cooperatives.

This year the scholarship program will focus efforts on expanding opportunities for young credit union professionals in the United Kingdom to connect and learn with their global peers during the World Credit Union Conference in Glasgow, Scotland.  We're more excited than ever to come together again after two long years of separation. It's going to be a great event!

Also this year, WYCUP will convene a task force of young professionals to explore opportunities for making the scholarship experience even more engaging and impactful. Have an idea to share? We'd love to hear it! For details on joining the task force or to share your thoughts, please contact wycup@woccu.org

Stay tuned for more details soon on the timeline for the WYCUP Scholarship 2022-2023!


Thank you to CUNA Mutual Group for enriching our professional journeys as champion Sponsors of the WYCUP Scholarship Program!
