Applications are now being accepted for the 2017-2018 AHEAD scholarship program!

Each year, a group of exceptional women are selected for CX memberships who do not currently have the financial resources to participate as Central Exchange members. This two-year endowed membership offers participants full exposure to all that our organization offers. Through Central Exchange programs and connections, AHEAD members discover new leadership and professional skills to enhance their careers and personal development.

Interested applicants should send a resume and cover letter to Kelly Chamberlain at kelly@centralexchange.org by August 1, 2017. Cover letters should address the following:
  • Company/organization where you currently work (if not currently working, indicate the company/organization where you were most recently employed)
  • Indicate why and how you believe being a member of Central Exchange will benefit your personal and professional development.
  • Why do you believe you are the ideal candidate to receive a scholarship?
  • Will your schedule allow your participation in a Central Exchange committee? 

We know there is a rich and diverse base of women in the Greater Kansas City area who could benefit from the professional development opportunities CX has to offer. For more information, contact Kelly Chamberlain at Kelly@centralexchange.org
