CUNA Scholarship Details

As CUNA has postponed many of our live events in 2020, we have paused our scholarship opportunities to attend these programs.

CUNA has been working diligently to provide timely, economical and informative virtual conferences, eSchools and webinars to help fill the void that these postponements have created. To see an up-to-date calendar of everything CUNA has been putting together, please visit
