Since 1982, Mountain West Credit Union Foundation has been working to advance the Credit Union movement through leadership development and initiatives that support the long-term success of credit unions in their communities. The Foundation exists because leadership is essential to the growth and success of the Credit Union Industry.
As a cooperative, we must own the responsibility of nurturing, growing, and supporting our leaders today if we want to reap the benefits of their leadership tomorrow.
This is important, because leadership is not just an idea. It’s action, participation, and a fundamental requirement for organizational success. Likewise, great leaders aren’t simply born. Leaders are made, through hard work and dedication to continuous learning and growth.
That’s why I’m pleased to announce a new scholarship opportunity to receive $10,000 Towards Your Master’s Degree.
Few of us would argue that the benefits of continued education are profound and valuable. As members and assets grow, so does the demands and complexity of being a Credit Union leader. Moreover, our industry is constantly changing, and unless our leaders are equipped to not only adapt, but drive growth and change, the Credit Union movement will suffer.
Ongoing education is vital for those professionals dedicated to being an important part of the Credit Union movement’s future success, and the Credit Union Leader Master’s Scholarship is just one way the Foundation is supporting them.
This $10,000 scholarship to fund an accredited master’s degree program will be awarded to a Credit Union leader who is committed to the Credit Union philosophy, and will leverage this degree to advance their Credit Union and the Movement.
However, this scholarship in not just about your advancement, it’s also about benefiting your Credit Union and the Movement. If Credit Unions are in your blood, you know this is the career for you, and you want to be a part of the future of the Movement, then don’t wait, Apply Today!
