The ICULD&E Foundation provides financial assistance as course bursaries/assisted places to qualifying credit union activists to attend Credit Union Development Educator courses outside their homelands, as well as to those who come from areas of the world with nascent credit union systems.
In the past 3 years,18 Development Educator (DE) graduates from 11 countries across 4 continents have received "Pell Scholarships" (bursaries).
Over an intense 5/6 day period, undergraduate Development Educators receive a total immersion in credit union history, philosophy, corporate governance and operational activity; developing new and latent skills, inspiring them with practical cooperation and emphasising the value of their place in social economy and impact on society.

The demand for bursaries
The "good" news is a growing demand for bursaries from international credit union activists to attend Development Educator courses taking place worldwide.
However, funds are diminishing fast and the "bad" news is a reduction on the number that can be granted and amounts given - hence this appeal ...
Bursaries can also be given to phenomenal individuals, who having qualified as DEs, are going to work on developing co-operative credit union systems where none currently exist.
The ICULD&E Foundation is about “credit union leaders of today building those of tomorrow” – please donate to help us in spreading the unique credit union difference and bringing its benefits to all.
