The George E. Myers Scholarship was established 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 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.
Since 1997, DCUC has awarded 53 scholarships totaling over $150,000 that has provided 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.
