CME Group Foundation Names New Scholars and Opens Pathways to STEM Fields

CME Group recently announced the 2022 recipients of its higher education scholarships, which include 18 rising Black and Latinx students majoring in finance, technology, and related fields at 11 partner colleges and universities in Illinois. Each of the recipients have been awarded $20,000 scholarships to further their education. With the addition of this year’s students, CME Group Foundation is currently supporting 35 students through this program.

While many scholarship programs are aimed at helping freshmen start college, the CME Group Foundation Scholarship 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, for a total of $60,000 in financial assistance. Since the launch in 2019, this program has awarded more than $2.5 million in scholarships to 69 talented college students.

CME Group Foundation is pleased to play a role in driving equitable growth opportunities for under-represented students in our state by providing financial assistance for high-quality education and career development opportunities. This scholarship program can help our students earn college degrees debt-free, while simultaneously opening new possibilities to explore careers at CME Group and other world-class organizations.
