CSBS Announces Winners of Graduate Banking Scholarships

The CSBS Education Foundation is awarding graduate school of banking scholarships to three outstanding state regulators who have demonstrated excellence in their careers.

Marcus Alleman of the Louisiana Office of Financial Institutions and Bernadette Manning and Joshua Parker of the North Carolina Office of Commissioner of Banks were selected as this year's recipients. Scholarship winners will receive up to $9,000 annually for attendance at a graduate school of banking of their choice. 

A runner-up scholarship is also awarded by the Graduate School of Banking in Colorado for $1,390 per year of attendance to their school, up to $4,170 for three years. This scholarship is awarded to Bryan Farnsworth of the Utah Department of Financial Institutions. 

About the Competition 

In 1972, the Board of Directors of CSBS authorized a program to reward outstanding and deserving examiners who demonstrate excellence in their work by supporting their attendance at the graduate banking or graduate trust school of their choice.

The program is designed to:

  • Encourage and assist qualified bank and trust examiners to prepare themselves for expanded duties and responsibilities in their banking departments
  • Broaden the examiner’s understanding of banking or trust operations
  • Encourage excellence in bank and trust examination
  • Provide the opportunity for State Bank Supervisors to recognize their outstanding examiners
  • Raise the level of proficiency of state banking departments

CSBS will announce when the 2020 scholarships are open for applications later this year.
