Community Assistance Scholarship Program

In our efforts to support member involvement in local communities, CUS has established the Community Assistance Scholarship Program (CASP). The intent of CASP is to impact local communities through by increasing support for existing local high school scholarship programs and develop possible linkages to increased CUS membership.

Leadership Development Scholarship

To ensure we continue to develop leadership within our organization, CUS has developed the Leadership Development Scholarship (LDS) to support our strategic goals to improve our leadership pipeline. The intent of this scholarship is to cover the registration costs for active CUS members to attend a statewide or national leadership conference.

Internal / External Leadership Scholarship

Through our dedication to servicing and educating others and in an effort to successfully elevate women as contributing members on campus, CUS has established the Internal & External Leadership Scholarship (ILS/ELS) program. These scholarships are open to all first generation undergraduate or graduate women who meet specific requirements.


As identified in the White House Initiative on Educational Excellence on Hispanics; “Fulfilling America's Future: Latinas in the U.S., 2015”, “…when women succeed, America succeeds…” Through our collective delivery of political, educational, cultural and social awareness programming to women on collegiate campuses across our 70 chapters, we devote ourselves to exemplify our motto, ‘Wisdom Through Education’.


In an effort to Educate, Elevate, and Empower all women CUS decided in 2016 that they would launch four distinct programs that would exemplify our motto "Wisdom through Education."
