WOCCU extends WYCUP Scholarship deadline to June 12
MADISON, Wis. (6/3/08)--The deadline for nominations for the World Council of Credit Unions' (WOCCU) Young Credit Union People (WYCUP) Scholarship Program has been extended to Thursday, June 12. The WOCCU Scholarship will be awarded to five recipients at the 2008 World Credit Union Conference in Hong Kong. Winners earn an all-expenses-paid trip to the 2009 World Credit Union Conference in Barcelona, Spain. The WYCUP Scholarship Program is part of WOCCU's commitment to ensuring the future sustainability of the international credit union system. It seeks individuals 35 years of age or younger who have made significant contributions to the development of their own credit unions, regional or national credit union systems, and who have demonstrated the potential to employ their unique talents at the international level. Credit unions and credit union organizations that are WOCCU members can nominate their next generation of credit union leaders to compete for the WYCUP Scholarship. To be eligible for the scholarship, nominees must:
* Be sponsored by their credit union or credit union organization to attend the conference in Hong Kong in July; * Be 35 years of age or younger as of Jan. 1, 2008; and * Submit a completed nomination form and supporting materials to WOCCU no later than June 12.
All WYCUP nominees will be formally recognized in Hong Kong and invited to take part in events, including a networking session, organized for participants 35 years of age and younger. Registrants in this age group qualify for a discounted registration fee regardless of whether they compete for the scholarship.
