53 Teams Enter CSBS Community Bank Case Study Competition
Student teams to examine pandemic response; diversity and inclusion measures
Washington, D.C. – Fifty-three student teams from 39 colleges and universities across the nation have entered the 2021 CSBS Community Bank Case Study Competition. The student teams will partner with local community banks to examine how they have navigated the Covid-19 pandemic and what they are doing for diversity and inclusion.
This is the seventh year of the competition, which is open to undergraduate students in all fields of study as an opportunity to gain valuable first-hand knowledge of the banking industry.
“This year’s competition will provide an important look at how community banks have reacted to two important current events – adjusting to a pandemic and its economic fallout, and responding to the need for diversity and inclusion,” said CSBS Senior Executive Vice President Michael L. Stevens.
The case studies are due May 17. The teams will undergo three rounds of judging, with the top three teams announced on June 17.
Each student member and faculty advisor of the first-place winning team will receive a $1,000 scholarship and be invited to present at the CSBS-Federal Reserve-FDIC Community Banking in the 21st Century Research and Policy Conference. Their work will be published in the annual CSBS Journal of Community Bank Case Studies. Teams that place second and third will also receive scholarships and have their works published in the journal.
