Arnold Paulson Scholarship Still Available!
by DakCU Communications

We can all agree, 2020 was a very unusual and demanding year with an overload of information to sift through almost daily. Due to feedback from many of our members, DakCU has decided to extend the Arnold Paulson Scholarship deadline to January 27, 2021.

Because of the uncertain circumstances, many credit unions are adopting a “wait and see” attitude for business travel, and we wish to be a bit flexible as well. Our hope is that by allowing these additional weeks, all deserving individuals who are considering attending our big event will be able to submit a scholarship application.

The Arnold C. Paulson Scholarship Fund was established in 1994 to promote the education of the credit union family as exemplified by the distinguished credit union career of Arnold C. Paulson, president of the North Dakota Credit Union League and Affiliates from 1973-1994. One $250 scholarship will be awarded to a deserving individual to attend the 2021 DakCU Annual Summit, May 3 – 5, 2021 in Fargo, ND. Persons who were candidates in the past are eligible for renomination! Individuals who received this award within the past five years and employees of DakCU & MASC are not eligible. The criteria used to determine scholarship winners includes future potential as a credit union leader and contributions to the credit union movement.

The application form can be found here on the DakCU website.

The absolute final day to submit entries is January 27, 2021. Entries may be mailed to Dakota Credit Union Association, 2005 N Kavaney Drive Suite 201, Bismarck ND 58501 or submitted electronically via email to Deb Kruckenberg.
