We're on a mission to transform finance
Scholars of Finance is an innovative nonprofit, currently established in New York, San Francisco, Chicago, and several other major cities, that develops the next generation of highly capable financial executives, who will act and lead from a strong grounding in principles and ethics.
We help undergraduate finance students build character and lead with integrity. SOF does this through leadership symposia, speaking engagements, a mentorship network, our leadership development program, and a growing community of student members and supportive finance leaders.
SCHOLARS OF FINANCE CREATES LASTING IMPACT
“What SOF teaches is not only content and providing resources, but it also helps you build a community of fellow Scholars of Finance committed to upholding values of integrity, humility, courage, and stewardship. No other programs or organizations specifically target ethical leadership in the same way.”Ansaar BaigCo-Founder, NWU Chapter
“There are no other organizations like Scholars of Finance at UC Berkeley. Other clubs may preach ethics, but it’s not their core pillar like it is for SOF. Values-based leadership is what differentiates SOF, and complements the learning I get in the classroom.”Ishan GillCo-Founder, UC Berkeley Chapter
“Throughout my time with SOF I have been able to develop a firm understanding of my values and principles as well as how I can live true to them. I now have a framework that I can use to evaluate my decisions and ensure that I’m acting in accordance with my deepest held values…”Nishant SinghalCo-Founder, Princeton Chapter
“SOF and its mentorship program has been an incredible experience for me... my mentor has been amazing and he has certainly increased my passion for financial services and Scholars of Finance’s potential impact.”Dennis FranklinCo-Founder, Columbia Chapter
