Donate to the FWA Scholarship Fund

The FWA Scholarship Fund has been awarding scholarships since 1985.  In that time, the fund has contributed to the future of women in finance by awarding over $1.8 million in scholarship grants to more than 200 Bay Area who show promise as future financial leaders.

The fund is affiliated with the Financial Women's Association of San Francisco and is funded through the  Financial Woman of the Year Event, supported by our generous sponsors.

"The FWA has impacted my life in several positive ways.  The scholarship program allowed me  focus more on final semesters at San Jose State University.  The mentor program linked me to an excellent mentor who is helping me with the transition from school to career.  Finally, the FWA events have allowed me to meet some very impressive and inspiring women."
