SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., May 27, 2022 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — Financial Women of San Francisco (FWSF), an organization dedicated to advancing women’s careers for more than 60 years, is appointing seventeen female college and university students from the Bay Area as its 2022 Fellows. The FWSF has awarded over $3 million in scholarships over the past 35 years to over 325 Bay Area women.
This is a corrected version to replace our previous version published on May 19, 2022.
“We are proud to offer a record number of 17 women the scholarships they need to pursue their educational goals in finance and accounting,” said Melissa Maquilan-Radic, 2022 President of the FWSF. “And we are so grateful to our generous donors and supporters who helped make this happen.”
The FWSF scholarships – $10,000 for undergraduate students and $15,000 for graduate students – support the educational goals of each recipient. Beyond financial support, FWSF scholars also have the opportunity to be mentored by FWSF members and attend career development and networking events. This year, the FWSF awarded scholarships to more students than ever before.
Each recipient is an academic and community leader whose goals align with FWSF’s mission to empower and support women in finance. All have a passion for finance and many act as mentors to other women and those in low-income communities, sharing financial knowledge to help end the cycle of poverty.
Risky investment in women and minorities; to co-found a nonprofit organization that reduces financial disparities for low-income, first-generation, and minority students; social entrepreneurship; to community building, mentoring, and hiring women in their organizations, these scholarship recipients demonstrate their commitment to making a positive impact in the world.
