“Igniting the pathway to our movements’ future”

The Caribbean Confederation of Credit Unions Development Foundation is excited to present to you, our inaugural Youth Successor Scholarships!

Two scholarships will be awarded to:

  1. An employee of CCCU member affiliate (League or member Credit Union) and;
  2. An employee of a Caribbean credit union that are indirect members of CCCU.

Our aspirations for these Youth Successors are to lead us into the future by being provided the platform to network, have their voices heard, and impact real change across our Caribbean Credit Union Leagues, Credit Unions, and the World. The 2 individuals awarded the Youth Successor scholarship will receive full airfare, accommodations, and convention fees covered to attend the Caribbean Confederation of Credit Unions (CCCU) convention in St.Kitts June 21st – 26th 2024. A value of approximately $5000USD per recipient. It is mandatory that the successful Scholarship Recipients participate in the Community give back initiative. Further details will follow.
