The SFIG Foundation, established in 2016, seeks to increase the availability of educational opportunities for underserved youth. It has collaborated with Mentor Foundation USA and Scholarship America to develop a scholarship program for students active in Mentor Foundation programs. The SFIG Foundation will also look to connect scholarship recipients to potential career opportunities within the significant network of SFIG member companies, which represent all sectors of the securitization market.

"We are absolutely thrilled to announce the recipients of the SFIG Foundation Scholarship Program for 2017. We are looking forward to supporting these students as they attend college and forge bright futures," said Sairah Burki, Executive Director of the SFIG Foundation. "We are also very grateful to the generous members of the securitization industry who made these scholarships possible and are providing such valuable opportunities to these talented students."

LaMont Wells, Chairman for Mentor Foundation USA remarked, "I am grateful for our partnership with the SFIG Foundation. This partnership was shaped to join two organizations whose expressed mission and goal is to provide youth an opportunity for self-improvement through drug awareness and prevention programs that can lead to scholarship for higher education. These students now have opportunities for success. There is nothing more important than investing in our youth. As business leaders, community members, and mentors, we have a duty to provide higher pathways for our young people."
