CME Group Foundation has established a scholarship program to assist African American and Latino students who are current or rising undergraduate sophomores, juniors or seniors or rising juniors, seniors, or graduate students enrolled in the 4+1 MS Finance degree program.
This program is administered by Scholarship America®, the nation’s largest designer and manager of scholarship, tuition assistance and other education support programs for corporations, foundations, associations, and individuals. Awards are granted without regard to creed, religion, sexual orientation, gender, disability, or national origin.
Awards may be renewed until a bachelor’s degree (or a 4+1 MS Finance degree) is earned on the basis of continued full-time enrollment and satisfactory academic performance.
Awards are for undergraduate study only with the exception of the 4+1 MS Finance degree. Awards may be used for all education-related expenses.
Applicants will be notified in late May. Not all applicants to the program will be selected as recipients. Students may reapply to the program each year they meet eligibility requirements.
Scholarship America processes scholarship payments on behalf of CME Group Foundation. Payments are made in one installment in early August.
Recipients must demonstrate financial need.
Selection of recipients is made by CME Group Foundation. All applicants agree to accept the decision as final.
