Become an AHEAD Scholar

Applications for the 2018-2019 AHEAD class are now closed. Please check back in Spring 2019 for our 2019-2020 scholarship information.

We know there is a rich and diverse group of women who could benefit from the opportunities CX has to offer

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.

The AHEAD application process was open July 1st, 2018 through July 31st, 2018.  Once open, please send your resume and cover letter and include the following:

  • Company/organization where you currently work (if not currently working, indicate where you 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 for participation in a Central Exchange committee?

Thank you for your interest!  For more information, contact Klassie Alcine at
