Invest Today. Transform Tomorrow.
Welcome to the CSM Foundation family where we aim to transform the lives of our students and our community by providing access to high-quality and affordable education. Your impact helps open the doors to higher education in Southern Maryland; close the money gap for students who cannot afford to pursue their educational or workforce training goals; and encourage the achievements of those who choose CSM as a path to success. Join us as we highlight our network of supporters, we are grateful for your continued support.
Transforming Tomorrow, One Student at a Time
“My biggest fear was how I was going to pay for this education without drowning in debt,” said Tina Shepherd, one of the many CSM Foundation scholarship recipients. “Even working full time and taking classes part time, it is still a huge stretch for me financially to do this… I am eternally grateful for the people who have generously provided scholarships for students like myself.”

CSM student Tina Shepherd knew she had what it takes to be academically successful, but did not know how she could create a path to success without financial help. On October 21, Shepherd spoke during the CSM Foundation Scholarship Reception on behalf of the students who are receiving scholarships for the 2016-2017 academic year.
The CSM Foundation Scholarship Reception is one of several ceremonies that join scholarship donors with the students who benefit from their generosity. For information on creating or donating to a scholarship, visit the CSM Foundation website.
