Young Director Bursary


The Directors' Forum established the Young Credit Union Directors' Bursary to assist young directors under 40 with their professional development and governance training. 

Young directors will also engage with credit union leaders and directors from credit unions across Ontario during the networking breaks, and develop potential mentorship opportunities. 

The bursary covers the cost of the conference registration (i.e., all conference sessions, meals served during the conference and activities are included. It does not cover the cost of transportation to and from the conference venue, the accommodations, or the evening meals (which are not part of the conference).

This year, there are three bursaries available. Applicants will be considered in order of applications received. 

Applicants must fulfil the following criteria in order to be considered for the bursary:

  • aged 39 and under at time of application and during the 2019 conference (October 3 - 5)
  • a current board member of an Ontario credit union or caisse populaire
  • demonstrate a commitment to both personal development and that of their credit union or caisse populaire
  • not have received a previous bursary from the DF
