Hear inspirational stories of recent AWF scholarship recipients about how receiving support funding helped them achieve their goals:

“It encourages me to have the confidence and faith in myself to rise in leadership positions in the finance field, and make it more inclusive together with men.”
“At times, it can be discouraging to see a lack of gender parity and representation within the finance industry, but [the Maureen Howe AWF Lifetime Achievement Award] has reminded me to continue working towards my career and academic goals.”
“The scholarship will allow me to pursue my degree, reducing the amount I would have to work at my two part-time Jobs. This is truly a blessing for me as I will be able to fully immerse myself into my studies, and as a result, achieve better grades.”
