WOCCU Womens Network announces scholarships
MADISON, Wis. (1/19/11)--The Global Women’s Leadership Network, a World Council of Credit Unions (WOCCU) subsidiary that addresses the contributions and needs of women credit union leaders worldwide, has issued a call for 2011 scholarship applicants. The deadline for application materials is March 15. Scholarships will cover registration fees and partial travel costs for women from developing credit union movements to take part in the 2011 Global Women’s Leadership Forum, July 23-24 in Glasgow, Scotland. The network, formed in 2009, is designed to promote educational, networking and mentoring opportunities for women credit union leaders worldwide. This year’s forum once again will be held in conjunction with WOCCU’s World Credit Union Conference. “The Global Women’s Leadership Forum provides an important link for credit union women across boundaries,” said Brian Branch, WOCCU executive vice president and chief operating officer. “Countless times we have seen women in credit unions worldwide lead the development and growth of their institutions and their communities. Both the network and forum seek ways to improve and increase those contributions.” The scholarship is designed to promote access to the annual forum and related events for eligible women leaders. Under the forum’s criteria, women from Australia, Canada, Ireland, Poland and the U.S. do not qualify for scholarships. Qualified recipients must demonstrate both financial need and successful contributions to their communities, credit unions and/or credit union systems. Preference will be given to recipients from diverse backgrounds who the evaluation committee believes have the most to gain from the experience. Scholarship materials should be sent to WOCCU’s Madison, Wis., headquarters. Scholarship offers will be made to successful candidates by March 15.
