Community Bank Student Competition Breaks Registration Record

Washington, D.C. – A record number of college student teams have signed up for the 2019 Community Bank Case Study Competition, the Conference of State Bank Supervisors (CSBS) announced today. 

Ninety-six student teams from 64 universities will research how the Economic Growth, Regulatory Relief, and Consumer Protection Act passed in May will impact community banks and the markets they serve. 

“We are very excited to see such strong interest,” said CSBS Senior Executive Vice President Michael Stevens. “This year’s competition will provide valuable insights into the impact of public policy on the real economy.” 

About the Case Study Competition 

Now entering its fifth year, the CSBS Community Bank Case Study Competition is the largest and most comprehensive undergraduate research competition on community banks.  

Student teams will conduct research at a community bank and produce both a research paper and a video summarizing their findings. 

The case studies will undergo three rounds of judging by three separate panels of banking experts. The top three scoring teams will be announced at the CSBS State-Federal Supervisors Symposium in San Antonio. The announcement will be streamed live on the competition website at www.csbs.org/bankcasestudy

The student teams compete for an academic scholarship, a chance to get their work published in an academic journal and an opportunity to attend the sixth annual CSBS-Federal Reserve Community Banking Research Conference, held in St. Louis in October.  

The 2018 Community Bank Case Study Competition covered institutions’ use of financial technology. The winning publications of the 2018 competition can be found here
