PHILADELPHIA – Community College of Philadelphia and FS Investments today announced the creation of a multi-year scholarship and internship program. Over the next five years, FS Investments will fully cover the cost of up to two years of tuition and provide paid internship opportunities for two College students each year.  

The goals of the program are to introduce students to the business world, expose them to dynamic, real-world learning opportunities, and help alleviate the financial burden of pursuing their education.  

“The College is extremely grateful for the continued support that FS Investments has extended to our students and the institution as a whole,” said College President Dr. Donald “Guy” Generals. “FS Investments Chairman and CEO, and my friend, Michael Forman has gone above and beyond to make this a true partnership. This program is not another band-aid solution, but rather an intentional commitment to addressing the multifaceted issues our students face each day.”  

As interns, College students will have access to the same resources as FS Investments full-time employees, including professional development opportunities, on-the-job skills training and opportunities to volunteer in the local community through the FS Foundation. 

“I believe the work the College is doing to educate the next generation of Philadelphians and prepare them for the 21st century is critically important,” said Forman. “By investing in these students, we can not only positively impact the students themselves, but the city as a whole, by helping to build a stronger workforce and more vibrant communities. I look forward to working with these talented students and continuing to partner with the College for many years to come.” 

In June, Forman was awarded the Corporate Leadership Award at the College Foundation’s 2022 Black & Gold Gala for his commitment to community growth in the areas of education, business and social services.
