CXR Foundation Announces 2022 $10,000 Scholarship Winner

In August 2021, the CXR Foundation established a $10,000 scholarship fund intended to support the post-secondary education of the children of talent professionals or talent professionals who are pursuing advanced degrees.

“The CXR Foundation wants to support our community of talent acquisition and talent management professionals in a variety of meaningful ways.” states CXR Foundation President, Chris Hoyt [@Chris Hoyt]. “We hope this scholarship can inspire many future talent leaders in the years to come.”

After receiving over 500 applications for this year’s scholarship, the CXR Foundation Scholarship Committee used a quantitative scoring metric that showed a preference for financial need and diverse backgrounds, among other criteria. The Committee interviewed the top six candidates and presented two finalists to the Board. As Steven Rothberg [@Steven Rothberg], CXR Foundation Scholarship Committee Member and Founder of College Recruiter, notes, “In our interview, this year’s winning candidate was real, candid, humble, confident, driven, focused, passionate, and wicked smart. This is a person who takes pride in making herself better but, more importantly, also makes everyone around her better. She is going to make this world a better place.”

This year’s winner is Christine Brown, who will be attending Southern New Hampshire University in pursuit of an MBA in Human Resources. “I feel truly honored to receive the 2022 CXR Foundation Scholarship. Human resources are the foundation blocks of every business. Receiving this scholarship will help me gain the knowledge and tools needed to serve my community in new HR roles.”

--

The next submission process opens in December 2022 with the scholarship being awarded in May 2023. The primary requirement will be that the recipient is the child of someone who works in the professions of talent acquisition or talent management OR a talent professional pursuing an advanced degree. Graduating high school seniors and current college/university students are invited to apply.

    I've asked our marketing person to socially share this with tags to CareerXroads, CXR Foundation, and Chris. I suspect that will be completed within a couple of days.

    @Steven Rothberg I just posted a few updates, and we'll see some come from the CXR accounts over the course of the week. We've also invited Christine to be a guest on the CXR Podcast, and I'm really looking forward to talking with her and giving her a chance to share her story more broadly.
