Boston – CFMA has established a scholarship program to assist CFMA members, their sons and daughters and CFMA member co-workers (including co-op students who are employed by January 1st of each year) who are pursuing an undergraduate degree in the field of Accounting or Finance, Engineering, Architecture or Project Management.
A minimum GPA of 2.75 on a scale of 4.0 is required. It is also required that the applicant submit an application (attached), an essay outlining their reason for pursuing a career in the above fields, transcripts of the students grades and two letters of recommendation with one letter from a teacher or professor and the other letter from an employer or personal (non-relative) reference.
Consideration will be given to students pursuing a career in the construction industry, or have been employed in the construction industry either through summer employment or cooperative education programs. These awards are intended to assist the student with the cost of tuition, and are to be used solely for this purpose, as well as an enticement for them to consider full-time employment in the industry upon graduation.
These scholarships are for tuition only and range in dollar value from $500 to $2,500 per scholarship. Total annual scholarships awarded by the Board shall not exceed $10,000. The application deadline is April 15, 2014.
