Be bold! Apply for the 2017 FINCAD Women in Finance Scholarship


The field of finance is changing rapidly, largely in response to regulations designed to protect market practitioners and to prevent financial crises. FINCAD has long believed that deep market knowledge, transparency and trustworthiness play a critical role in making financial markets safe for all participants.

In addition, FINCAD is keenly aware that the majority of practitioners in the capital markets industry are men, and that the trend to include more women in the industry is not as rapid as it should be.

For these reasons, FINCAD established the annual FINCAD Women in Finance Scholarship. The goal is to encourage and support outstanding women in the field of finance, particularly relating to the use of derivatives in capital markets and/or financial risk management, and give them an opportunity to cultivate their skills and knowledge.

The FINCAD Women in Finance Scholarship is an award of US$10,000 to support graduate-level studies.

The scholarship is open to women of any age and citizenship who are studying Finance in an accredited graduate-level program.

Are you, or is someone you know, interested in this opportunity? Be bold and apply for the 2017 FINCAD Women in Finance Scholarship.
