FINCAD Women in Finance Scholarship 2016 (US$10,000 award for Studies)

Deadline: February 26, 2016

FINCAD is now accepting applications for the 2016 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.

About FINCAD Scholarship

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 Award

The FINCAD Women in Finance Scholarship is an award of US$10,000 to support graduate-level studies.


  • Open to women of any age and citizenship
  • Applicants should be studying Finance in a graduate-level program
