SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., May 19, 2022 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — Financial Women of San Francisco (FWSF), an organization dedicated to advancing the careers of women for over 60 years, names seventeen students from Bay Area colleges and universities as its 2022 scholarship recipients. FWSF has awarded over $3 million in scholarships over the past 35 years to more than 325 Bay Area women.
“We are proud to offer a record 17 women the scholarships they need to pursue their educational goals in finance and accounting,” says Melissa Maquilan-Radic, FWSF’s 2022 President. “And we are so grateful to our generous donors and supporters who have helped make this happen.”
The FWSF scholarship grants—$10,000 for undergraduate and $15,000 for graduate students— support each recipient’s educational goals. Beyond financial support, FWSF scholarship recipients also receive opportunities to be mentored by FWSF members and attend career development and networking events. This year, 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 from low-income communities, sharing financial literacy to help end the cycle of poverty.
From venture investing in women and minorities; to co-founding a non-profit that reduces financial disparities for low-income, first generation, and minority students; to social entrepreneurship; to community building and mentoring and hiring women in their organizations, these scholarship winners demonstrate a commitment to making a positive impact in the world.
