Commercial Loan
Broker Institute Scholarship

The Seeds We Plant Now Will Nourish the Future.

At the Commercial Loan Broker Institute, we believe in investing in the future of early-career entrepreneurs. With over 30 years of proven, real-world commercial capital finance and training experience and a BBB accreditation with an A+ rating, we know what it takes to succeed. Each fiscal quarter, we pass on that knowledge to college and university students through the CLBI Scholarship program.

Our complete loan broker launch program comes in four tiers, so students can choose the right package for their needs. Each package comes with access to our Virtual Academy, course materials, tailored presentations and pitch decks, access to our full lenders library, branding and marketing for their new company, and a dedicated team member that will help guide the student through the learning process. These are just a few of the many tools we offer to introduce new entrepreneurs to the world of commercial lending.

CLBI understands that financial constraints can often be a barrier to education. That’s why we’ve decided to offer $3000 off one of our comprehensive training program tiers with the CLBI Scholarship. Each fiscal quarter, our full team of loan brokers will read each application and vote on a winner. That means four students annually will receive a jump start on their new careers! Entry details and deadlines are below.

The Competition

Applicants to the CLBI Scholarship program need to submit an essay before the next quarterly deadline. This essay should consist of 2000 words: 1000 words detailing why you want to be a loan broker and 1000 words about what you would do differently to revolutionize the industry. We want fresh, new ideas and innovative thinking.


The competition is open to anyone currently enrolled in an accredited college or university pursuing an Associate’s, Bachelor’s, or Master’s degree in any field.
