David A. Cole Scholarship Application

The David A. Cole Scholarship Fund was established by David Cole in 1983. Mr. Cole is a former continuing education student who changed careers after completing the Real Estate Certificate Program offered through Continuing & Professional Education (CPE).

The purpose of the David A. Cole Scholarship is to assist those students who are enrolled or wish to enroll in a program/workshop through CPE or University Without Walls which might result in a career change. It is Mr. Cole's wish that students who receive scholarships be encouraged to replenish the fund established, once they are financially able.
