Scholarship Fund

ABOUT THE SCHOLARSHIP FUND

CMLA will award merit scholarships to designated Colorado college applicants each Summer prior to the Fall Semester. The scholarship recipient will also have the opportunity to participate in CMLA’s internship program to ensure optimal exposure to the mortgage banking industry’s values, consumer benefits, and career opportunities.

The goal of this program is to begin telling the mortgage bankers’ story at the college level to improve their perception of our industry, invest in improving the quality of the next generation of mortgage bankers, and herald our commitment to raising the ethical bar. In other words, create a “join a winning team” opportunity through these scholarship awards that promotes a sense of pride and accomplishment.
