  2. Purchasing a Raffle Ticket. ICUF is currently holding a raffle leading up to the ICUF Benefit Night at the 2013 Iowa Credit Union Convention. Tickets can be purchased for $5 each or a book of 4 for $20. Tickets will be available at the Convention Registration Area beginning Wednesday, September 18 at 2 p.m. and on sale through Benefit Night on Thursday. The grand prize is a VIZIO 60" LED SMART HDTV with Wi-Fi!

All proceeds go to support ICUF programs, grants and scholarships.

Warren A. Morrow Memorial Scholarship Launch Coming Soon
In the coming weeks, credit union members may begin applying for the Warren A. Morrow Memorial Scholarship to offset their post-secondary education expenses.

As in past years, the application process will be done online. All applicants must have a credit union account in good standing in Iowa and must submit their own work on the essay question. The essay topic will be chosen soon. Application deadline is February 7, 2014.

Formerly known as the FIB Scholarship, the scholarship was renamed for the late Warren Morrow in 2011 for his extraordinary dedication to the credit union industry and the Hispanic community. Warren was instrumental in ICUF's growth.
