The 2024 FWSF Scholarship Winners

SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. /Massachusetts Newswire – National News/ — Financial Women of San Francisco (FWSF), an organization dedicated for more than 60 years to advancing the careers of women, names ten students from Bay Area colleges and universities as its 2024 scholarship recipients. FWSF has awarded over $3 million in scholarships over the past 35 years to more than 325 Bay Area women.

FWSF’s scholarship program aims to support and empower women pursuing careers in finance and accounting, industries historically dominated by men. By providing financial assistance and mentorship opportunities, the program seeks to break down barriers and foster a more inclusive environment for women in these fields.

“We are delighted to recognize the outstanding achievements and potential of these remarkable women,” said Sue English Mazzetti, President of Financial Women of San Francisco. “Each of our scholarship winners has demonstrated not only academic excellence in finance and accounting, but also a deep passion for helping their communities. We are confident they will make significant contributions to the industry and serve as inspiring role models for future generations. And we are so grateful to our sponsors for helping to make these scholarships happen.”

The FWSF scholarships – $10,000 for undergraduate and $15,000 for graduate students – support each recipient’s educational goals. Beyond financial support, FWSF scholarship recipients also receive mentorship from FWSF members and the opportunity to attend career development and networking events with an FWSF membership.

Each recipient is an academic and community leader whose goals align with FWSF’s mission to empower and support women in finance. These ten inspiring winners will be honored at the FWSF Scholarship Awards Ceremony, coming up on June 6 in San Francisco. Financial Women of San Francisco congratulates the 2024 scholarship winners!
