Meet Our 2024 Scholarship & Outstanding Graduating Student Award Recipients

The CIP/ICU Planning Student Trust Fund (CIP-PSTF) Board of Directors is pleased to announce our 2024 scholarship recipients and our Outstanding Graduating Student Award recipients. This year, CIP-PSTF awarded four scholarships totaling $18,000 in financial assistance. Twenty-one Outstanding Graduating Student Awards were granted, with each winner receiving a book prize.

The sustainability of the scholarship and bursary programs is dependent on individual donations and corporate sponsorships. If you want to support planning students through CIP-PSTF’s programs, you can donate today.
