Application invited for Women in Finance Scholarship 2019

Closing date- 30th June 2019
Back in 1990, FINCAD was just two men working 16-hour days with a vision of making transparency the modus operandi of the derivatives trading space. What has changed since then? For one thing, transparency is no longer the focus of two outliers – it has become one of the fundamental pillars of the financial analytics world.

1-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

2-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.

1-For these reasons, FINCAD established our annual Women in Finance Scholarship. The goal is to encourage and support outstanding women in the field of finance, particularly those pursuing careers in financial asset management, market risk management and derivatives finance within the capital markets.  The FINCAD Women in Finance Scholarship is an award of US$20,000 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.
