scholars Program

CBC Scholars Program was established in 2010. Each CBC University was invited to nominate up to three outstanding advanced graduate students to participate in the new CBC Scholars Program. Each CBC Scholar receives a grant of $4,000 per year for up to two years to be used for academically related purposes such as travel to conferences. The CBC Scholar Program intends to develop a leadership forum for students from the CBC Universities to advance the CBC mission of fostering collaboration and excellence.
