CFMA-Philadelphia’s Scholarship Committee is currently seeking qualified applicants for the 2022 Barbara Mosteller Scholarship.  The Barbara Mosteller Scholarship is offered each year to eligible individuals who are pursuing a career in construction financial management. 


Barbara was an active member and executive director of the Philadelphia Chapter during its early years as well as a dynamic and respected member within the industry.  The Barbara Mosteller Scholarship Fund was established in her memory with the goal of promoting the pursuit of careers in construction in an accounting or finance capacity.  For many years, CFMA-Philadelphia’s annual golf outing has been dedicated to the memory of Barbara and a portion of its proceeds have been allocated to the Barbara Mosteller Scholarship Fund.  We are grateful for the strong support provided by attendees and sponsors for this great event. 


The chapter’s goal is to award one or two scholarships totaling $10,000 to qualified candidates as reimbursement for the actual Tuition Costs incurred, from the Fall of 2022 through the Spring of 2023, which are not otherwise paid by any other source, including the applicant's employer or other scholarship program.  The committee reserves the right to modify the award amount and number of recipients. Applicants should review the application for more specific information on the distribution of funds.


We encourage you to publicize the availability of this scholarship to your current students and any other potential candidates.

1.  Applicant must reside and/or work in the geographic area serviced by the CFMA Philadelphia Chapter
