THE DEFENSE CREDIT UNION COUNCIL
GEORGE E. MYERS SCHOLARSHIP FUND
The Defense Credit Union Council established the George E. Myers Scholarship Fund in 1996 in honor of Col. George E. Myers, USA (Ret.). Colonel Myers was an Executive Director of the Council and selected to the first DCUC Hall of Honor, along with DCUC's Founding Fathers, in August 2000.
The Fund’s purpose is to provide scholarships for volunteers, management, and/or staff of DCUC member credit unions. so they can further their professional credit union education, knowledge and leadership skills.
This year DCUC will be awarding three $3000.00 scholarships, which allows for the expense of travel and tuition. The scholarships are awarded each year at the Council’s Defense Issues Roundtable, which is generally held at the end of February (in conjunction with, but not part of, CUNA’s GAC).
The first George E. Myers Scholarship for the year 1997 was awarded in February 1998 to Susan Loney, Overseas Operations, Andrews Federal Credit Union, MD, for attendance at the CUNA Consumer Lending Management School. Initially, the GEM fund provided for one $500 scholarship.
Since 1997, DCUC has awarded 32 scholarships, providing members an opportunity to partake in educational forums and classes (either at the State or National level) at virtually little or no cost to their credit union. Please click here for all previous winners.
