Charles River Associates Opens Second Scholarship Cycle, Expands to the UK

By Uloop Staff on March 25, 2024

Charles River Associates (CRA), a leading provider of economic, financial and management consulting services, recently announced the opening of the 2024-25 CRA All-Access Scholarship, according to a press release. CRA will award $5,000 scholarships to twelve students for their junior year in the United States or final year in the United Kingdom.

Part of the company’s All-Access Initiative – which champions the importance of higher education, particularly within traditionally underserved communities – the All-Access Scholarship Program is a talent development pipeline program that seeks to support female students and students from socioeconomically challenged backgrounds pursuing degrees in Business, Economics, or STEM fields. Originally launched in 2023 for U.S.-based applicants only, the program marks its second year with an expansion to the UK through CRA’s partnership with SEO London.

“This expansion represents a significant step forward in our journey towards fostering inclusion and empowerment,” said Raquel Tamez, CRA’s Chief Inclusion and Engagement Officer. “By investing in the potential of these future leaders, we are not only creating opportunities for individual growth but also driving positive change on a broader scale.”

“To all applicants for this year’s round of scholarships, I encourage you to seize this opportunity and submit your applications. Your determination and drive are the cornerstones of our program’s success, and we look forward to welcoming the next cohort of inspiring scholars,” said Tamez. “Together, let us continue to champion the values of inclusion and empowerment as we work towards a brighter and more inclusive future for all.”

Applicants in the United States must be current, full-time college sophomores attending an accredited college/university and majoring in Business, Economics, or STEM with an overall GPA of 3.5. Ideal candidates will have a record of leadership and community service, exhibit financial need, and demonstrate a commitment to inclusion and empowerment.

The deadline to apply for the 2024-25 CRA All-Access Scholarship is April 22, 2024. For more information and to begin the application process, visit crai.com/cra-all-access-scholarship.

This program is administered by International Scholarship and Tuition Services Inc., an independent company that specializes in managing sponsored educational assistance programs.
