Jim Guy Memorial Scholarship Program

Making a Difference

The Jim Guy Memorial Scholarship Program awards two $1,000 educational scholarships; with one awarded to the child of a Cambridge independent financial professional, and one awarded to a Cambridge associate or the child, grandchild, spouse, or immediate family member of a Cambridge associate. This program reflects Cambridge’s purpose of making a difference in the lives of our financial professionals, their clients, and our associates. It also celebrates the academic achievements of our extended Cambridge family, and honors the legacy of our dear friend and colleague, Jim Guy. 

Jim joined Cambridge’s executive group in 1999, and continued leading his independent practice while providing senior executive leadership for Cambridge’s recruiting and marketing. He was instrumental in the early development of Cambridge’s fee-based programs, and he also focused on supporting and improving the independent financial professional’s business through practice management coaching, marketing initiatives, and product services.
