Boston Women in Finance (BWF) is honored to announce the launch of our first annual BWF Inspire Scholarship. As part of our continued commitment to engage professional women, BWF is committed to providing minority women the opportunity to succeed in the business world. The goal of this scholarship is to inspire, motivate and elevate these women in their pursuit of a career in the financial industry.
There is a lot of discussion in the country at present about discrimination so we at BWF asked ourselves, what can we do as an organization to make a difference? The BWF Inspire Scholarship is a small step in the grand scheme of things but we hope it will be a big step for the scholarship recipients.

Sticking with our Boston area roots, we are offering this scholarship to students at Bunker Hill Community College and University of Massachusetts Boston. Women comprise more than 50% of the student body at each of these public schools. Additionally, Bunker Hill is one of the most diverse institutions of higher education in Massachusetts with approximately 24% African-American students and 24% Latino and greater than 50% female students. UMass Boston is the third most diverse university in the U.S.
The recipients of this scholarship will be awarded a one-year membership in BWF, free attendance at BWF events during that school year and assigned mentors. The application and qualification details are posted on the Boston Women in Finance website. Deadline for this year's application is September 30, 2020.
We look forward to announcing the three recipients of the BWF Inspire Scholarship in October 2020.
