c2c - Connect to Collaborate Scholarship

Connect 2 Collaborate

Do you have talented staff under the age of 40? Are you looking for opportunities to hone and develop their leadership skills? c2c connects young professionals and identifies rising leaders. Money’s on the table!

About the Scholarship

The  Cornerstone Foundation and Southwest CUNA Management School (SCMS) have joined forces to invest in the future of the credit union system through the SCMS c2c (Connect to Collaborate) Scholarship.

Up to the full amount of SCMS tuition for one year paid by the student’s credit union will be reimbursed for one student. Odds are better than 1 in 60 to win! At the end of the first year of SCMS, classmates vote on who among the under 40 age group exhibited the most leadership within their class. Simple majority wins. No application is needed. In the event of a tie, the scholarship will be split. The winner is announced during graduation ceremonies.

First-year students have an opportunity for their tuition to be reimbursed simply by being voted as the one who exhibited the most leadership skills among their peers.

A huge thank you goes out to Mark Arnold, Brent Dixon, Shawn Temple, and the CU Grow team for helping to move c2c from concept to reality.

Who is Eligible?

Credit union professionals under the age of 40 as of the beginning of the SCMS term who successfully complete the first session of SCMS are eligible for this scholarship. Their credit union must be affiliated with their state association or league.
