A small team, committed to a cause bigger than themselves, can achieve anything.

We recently hired our first two full-time staff to lead and build Scholars of Finance over the coming years, and we are currently accepting applications for Directors of the Board. This is a unique opportunity to join a start-up organization with strong momentum and take it to the next level of impact.

Passion for our mission, commitment to our work together, entrepreneurial spirit, and high performance are the key qualities that will lead to success in these roles. If you’re interested in building this organization, we’d love to hear from you.


There is a growing body of student leaders who are deeply invested in our organization’s mission and success.

All student leadership teams are on executive committees with cross-functional projects that affect both our local and national impact. They have the opportunity to conduct research and build strategy, lead teams to bring projects to market, manage finances, foster relationships with top executives, and be mentored intensively by our Board of Directors.

Our past student leaders have gone on to graduate and join organizations like Goldman Sachs, Wells Fargo, US Bank, and many others. If you’re interested in opportunities as an undergraduate that will help you become a future leader, apply to become a Scholar of Finance today.


If you’re interested in making an impact with Scholars of Finance or just have questions, please reach out and we’ll gladly discuss possible opportunities.
