Now Accepting CUDE Scholarship Applications
The Louisiana Credit Union Foundation and the Young Professionals Network (YPN) are now accepting applications for the 2020 Credit Union Development Education Program (CUDE) Scholarship.

We will be awarding one scholarship to a credit union professional that has demonstrated ,through their actions, their passion and commitment to credit unions. The deadline to submit your completed application and reference letter is November 30

The recipient of last year's scholarship, Crystal Abshire from Campus FCU, had this to say about her experience:

"This program made me grow not just as an employee but as an individual. The Credit Union movement is about giving back and being more than just an employee, it is about being that ripple in the water that will flow through the credit union and communities to spread the word and helping hand of credit unions around the world. As I continue to navigate  my path in the credit union movement as well as life I will 'Trust the Process' and make waves one ripple at a time! I am truly grateful for this opportunity."

Is Your Vehicle Repossession Process Compliant? See What KRP Has to Say
