As part of our mission to empower women worldwide, GWLN provides an annual scholarship to female leaders within the credit union industry to provide opportunities for professional development, networking and diversifying skill sets to make an impact.

Since 2009

GWLN has awarded 64 scholarships to women from 24 countries. Scholarships are made possible through funding from annual membership donations and sponsorships, including the generous support of CUNA Mutual Group, PSCU and the Susan Adams Scholarship Fund, which was established in honor of former Entrust Financial Credit Union CEO Susan Adams supported by OneAZ Credit Union.
