FORT COLLINS, Colo., Sept. 6, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- In honor of the next generation of mortgage lenders, Cornerstone Home Lending, Inc. has created an annual scholarship program for Colorado State University (CSU). The program awards $2,500 to an attending junior or senior pursuing a degree in the College of Business at CSU. The funds may be applied towards tuition, housing, or living expenses.

"I'm exceptionally proud of Cornerstone's commitment to our communities and our students, and I look forward to meeting our first scholarship recipient!"
Scholarship applicants must be a College of Business junior or senior with a minimum 3.0 GPA.
