CSI Leasing Sponsors UMSL Opportunity ScholarshipDecember 20, 2022
CSI Leasing, Inc. (CSI) is continuing its charitable contributions as it closes its fiscal year commemorating the company’s 50th anniversary. The company has pledged $50,000 to the University of Missouri-St. Louis (UMSL) for an Opportunity Scholarship worth $10,000 per year for the next five years. The scholarship is intended to give preference to students from the Ferguson-Florissant School District who are interested in studying business administration. CSI has previously sponsored scholarships intended to target students who might not otherwise be able to afford tuition.
“As an alumnus of both UMSL and the Ferguson-Florissant School District, this is personal for me. We don’t do things on our own in life. We need support from other people and for me this certainly started at UMSL,” said Steve Hamilton, chairman and CEO of CSI Leasing. “Being able to pay it forward and give aspiring students a lift to help them transform their lives is an honor. I am proud that CSI is helping build the next generation of St. Louis business leaders.”
UMSL’s Opportunity Scholars Program provides a unique opportunity for high school students to receive a scholarship to the University of Missouri-St. Louis, as well as the opportunity to develop career experience. The program focuses on academically gifted first-generation college students and/or students majoring in certain academic fields who are underrepresented in the work force.
