Financial need

The financial industry has an underrepresentation of minorities, hindering the continued progress and growth of the field.

Pursuing fields that lack diversity can feel isolating for minority students, leading many to pursue other fields and continuing the cycle of underrepresentation. Industries flourish when the best and brightest minds, regardless of background, come together to use their unique experiences to solve problems, think creatively, and innovate. 

This scholarship seeks to support underrepresented students as they pursue their dreams through higher education.

Any BIPOC undergraduate student who has financial need and is pursuing finance, business, or a closely related major may apply for this scholarship.

To apply, tell us about yourself, your family needs growing up, how you were inspired to pursue business or finance, and how you hope to make a difference in your community after graduation.
