The BWF Inspire Scholarship
I am a member of the Boston Women in Finance (BWF) Board of Directors and BWF is thrilled to announce the launch of its inaugural BWF Inspire Scholarship. BWF is committed to providing minority women the opportunity to succeed in the business world. The goal of this scholarship is to inspire, motivate, support, and elevate these women in their pursuit of a career in the financial industry. We will be selecting three recipients for the scholarship in November 2021. Applications are due October 15, 2021.
Boston Women in Finance is a professional women's group dedicated to bringing together a diverse community of accomplished women with financial backgrounds, experience, and industry interests, to network, collaborate, and inspire. Our membership is a powerful community of women leaders, innovators, and influencers that include executives from PNC Bank, MindWise Innovations, Granite Telecommunications, Boston Partners Global Investors, and The CFO Leadership Council among other organizations.
Sticking with our roots in the Boston community, we are offering this scholarship to eligible students enrolled in associates, bachelors and graduate degree programs at a Boston area college or university. Each scholarship recipient will be awarded a $500.00 check, receive a one-year paid membership to BWF and free attendance at all BWF events for one-year. The recipients will be connected to BWF member mentors who are finance professionals in the greater Boston area. The application and qualification details are posted on the Boston Women in Finance website.
We look forward to announcing the three winners of the BWF Inspire Scholarship in November 2021 and bringing them in as a part of our BWF community.
