Quantitative Finance Fellowship
 
The fellowship helps outstanding students committed to completing summer internships in quantitative finance navigate the process. Each fellow is matched with three industry professionals who provide career advice and guidance throughout the summer internship recruiting process. The assignment of three mentors at varying stages of their careers — junior, mid-level and senior — provides fellows with a unique, 360-degree perspective on the industry. Mentors come from leading firms, and an effort is made to match based on each fellow's stated function and geographic location preferences. Fellows also receive a nominal fellowship award.
