SAN FRANCISCO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Financial Women of San Francisco (FWSF), an organization dedicated to advancing the careers of women for over 60 years, names eleven students attending six Bay Area universities as its 2020 scholarship recipients. FWSF has awarded over $2.7 million in scholarships over the past 30 years to more than 300 Bay Area women.
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.
“We are grateful to our generous donors and sponsors who make it possible for us to continue these scholarship awards each year,” says Olivia Barbee, FWSF’s 2020 President. “The support is essential for each of these remarkable students and directly helps them advance their careers in finance.”
Each recipient is an academic and community leader whose goals align with FWSF’s mission to empower and support other women in finance. For example, Halle Sullivan, a senior at St. Mary’s College of California, will begin a master’s degree program in accounting this fall. Halle looks forward to empowering other women and teaching them how to speak confidently about their field of study.
Many recipients also demonstrate a commitment to making a positive impact in the world. Tulika Garg, who is pursuing a Wharton Executive MBA in finance and venture capital, plans to use her education to help women around the world achieve better lives through financial independence.
