NorthWest Credit Union Collectors Association offers two types of scholarships to member credit unions: Educational Scholarships and Conference Scholarships.

Educational Scholarships are awarded for educational programs directly related to collection and/or lending. We budget $1,500 annually for our educational scholarship, which is to assist one or more association members to attend national schools or conferences. Examples would be Eric North Bankruptcy Conference, Rex Johnson’s University of Lending, CUNA Financial Counseling School, CUNA Beginning and Advanced Collections and Bankruptcy School, Western CUNA Management School or even college courses directly related to collection or lending career. We are currently taking applications for fiscal year September 2016 -August 2017.

Contact Missy Ray for applications and qualifications.

Conference Scholarships are available to member credit union collectors and lenders, enabling those to attend who might otherwise not. We budget up to ten scholarships for our annual conference in June and they are available on a first come first serve basis. To request a scholarship, complete our Conference Scholarship Request Form. The completed form must be submitted by May 10, 2017 to be eligible for the upcoming conference. PLEASE NOTE: Scholarship funds are almost sold out with only 3 conference fee scholarships left ONLY!
