George E. Myers Scholarship



The Defense Credit Union Council established the George E. Myers Scholarship Fund 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.


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 49 scholarships totaling nearly $140,000.

"I am very grateful that the GEM Scholarship helped cover my expenses for the school I attended which enabled me to better serve my credit union and our members. I think the scholarship is a wonderful example of the credit union philosophy: people helping people."

– Rose F., past GEM Scholarship Recipient
