CME Group Foundation Scholarship

The CME Group Foundation Scholars Program will award renewable scholarships of up to $20,000 per year to students from historically underserved groups who are majoring in finance, information technology, computer science or applied mathematics at 11 eligible partner schools in Illinois and New Jersey. 

Eligible applicants must be current or rising sophomores, juniors or seniors from a low-income and historically marginalized community, who plan to enroll full-time at one of eleven CME Group Foundation partner schools for the entire upcoming academic year. Students enrolled in a 4+1 MS program are eligible. Applicants must also be pursuing a major in Information Technology, Computer Science, Finance, Data Science, Cyber Security, Math, Statistics, Financial Engineering or Accounting and have a minimum GPA of 2.5 on a 4.0 scale (or its equivalent). 

Recipients will be asked to attend a one-day market education program at CME Group in Chicago in August 2025. Travel expenses will be reimbursed.
