the Students

The CMA Legacy Society provides funding for the educational essentials that are crucial to a student’s success.  Since 2006, CMA Book Scholarships have been given to the Vail Valley’s top students at Colorado Mountain College (CMC). A typical book scholarship awards each recipient with $400-$800 depending on need, and each year helps between 10-40 talented scholars.  Just last year, 27 students received funding to help pay for their books as a direct result of your generosity.
All types of students are eligible for the scholarships, whether they are undertaking an associate or bachelor’s degree. CMA’s funds have supported dozens of first-in-family college students, as well as non-traditional recipients who are going back to school to reinvent themselves.  By helping these local students obtain their degrees, CMA has a tremendous impact on the community at large, creating a better educated workforce.  Since inception, we have donated more than $130,000 dollars to CMC, enabling 238 students to pursue their higher educational goals and dreams.
