CME Group Foundation Scholars
In 2019, CME Group Foundation established a scholarship for underrepresented minority college students studying finance or technology. While many scholarship programs are aimed at helping freshmen start college, the CME Group Foundation Scholars Program works to ensure that sophomores, juniors, and seniors can finish their four-year degrees. Winners can reapply for up to three years of support.
Earlier this year, Kassie Davis of the CME Group Foundation, announced the winners of the 2020-2021 CME Group Foundation Scholars program. 21 returning scholars received up to $20,000 in scholarships, and 15 new scholars were added to the roster, receiving the same level of financial support. In total, $700,000 was allocated to these deserving students.
