Scholarship Initiative

Providing Scholarships and Support to Young Women Interested in Technology, Math, Science and Finance

In order to achieve our goal of helping girls and women succeed in financial services and other traditionally male-dominated arenas, WIND recognizes that women must be educated, supported, and encouraged to pursue these fields well before college graduation or when they seek graduate degrees. To that end, WIND intends to create a scholarship program, offering scholarships and grants in an amount determined by the Board to as many qualified women as it can on an annual basis who are interested in pursuing careers in technology, math, science and finance. At the outset, WIND anticipates hiring Scholarship Management Services, a division of Scholarship America, to help implement its scholarship program because of its expertise. Applicants to the WIND scholarships must be high school seniors, college students or college graduates who plan to enroll in full-time study in the areas of technology, math, science or finance. Scholarship recipients will be selected by Scholarship Management Services based upon academic record, potential to succeed, leadership and participation in community activities. In order to avoid any conflict of interest, no child of a WIND board member or committee member will be selected.

The Scholarship Program Committee is chaired by Kyle Brandon, MD at SIFMA.
