Old Line Bank establishes STEP-UP scholarship at CSM

Old Line Bank has been a strong supporter of CSM, providing an annual business program scholarship, becoming one of the first major sponsors to support the addition of the Men’s Lacrosse program when the program launched in 2014 and being a supporter of the college’s summer performances and the annual golf classic.
The CSM Foundation has launched a transformative three-year outreach and fundraising effort that will culminate in 2018 with the college’s 60th anniversary. “Make Your Impact: Invest Today to Transform Tomorrow” addresses access, affordability and achievement by ensuring that degree programs and career training are available to everyone through scholarships, that high caliber programs, facilities and technology are accessible, and that strategic partnerships and innovation are created and sustained in the community.
