FINCAD Women in Finance 2016 Scholarship


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.

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.

For these reasons, FINCAD established the annual FINCAD Women in
Finance Scholarship. The goal is to encourage and support outstanding
women in the field of finance, particularly relating to the use of
derivatives in capital markets and/or financial risk management, and
give them an opportunity to cultivate their skills and knowledge.


  • The scholarship is open to women of any age and citizenship who are studying Finance in a graduate-level program.
  • This opportunity is open to women of any age and citizenship who are studying Finance in an accredited graduate-level program.
