Help Develop and Engage the Next Generation of Cooperative Leaders!


Is there a promising young employee or board member at your co-op? Are there any post-secondary students on your radar who are recognized for their demonstrated interest in cooperatives and credit unions?

Nominate them for a chance to attend NCBA CLUSA’s Cooperative Leaders and Scholars Institute at the 2018 Co-op IMPACT Conference on a full scholarship! Their voices will be a critical part of our conversation around how co-ops can create space for more inclusive economic participation and growth.

This robust scholarship program is your co-op’s chance to develop and engage employees, board members and post-secondary students—ages 18 to 35—with participation in a national cooperative conference and exposure to co-op industry and thought leaders, policymakers and other key partners.

Participants in the Cooperative Leaders & Scholars Institute will attend the full IMPACT Conference free of charge, as well as participate in exclusive orientation and networking events designed specifically to meet their interests and broaden their understanding of co-op economic impact.

The full scholarship covers:

  • Orientation and networking sessions
  • Access to all conference sessions and social events
  • Travel stipend
  • Shared accommodations at the Sheraton Pentagon City Conference Hotel
