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

When I found Scholars of Finance I knew we needed a chapter at Stern! For SOF, we're all here to serve the broader community and the members of my chapter make an incredible team.

Tiffany ChangCo-Founder, NYU Chapter

SOF’s feedback culture is tremendously powerful, since it grows members who can be more successful in their classes, careers, and lives. I credit my time in SOF with strengthening my growth mindset in work situations.
