The Women’s Bond Club Scholarship Program
This merit-based program awards scholarships to young women in high school who are interested in a career in business or finance. The scholarship, which can be used to pay for books and other expenses, totals $20,000 over four years. Since the program’s inception in 2000, WBC has awarded 76 scholarships totaling $1.26 million.
The WBC Scholarship Program is available to students attending a select number of NYC public high schools with a business curriculum. Scholarship winners participate in Guiding Star, a mentorship program. Each student is paired with an experienced professional for the course of their four-year college career.
Mentors offer career guidance and help prepare scholarship winners for interviews, internships, full-time employment and life after graduation. The WBC Mentoring Committee works closely with the WBC Internship and Jobs committee to assist the WBC scholarship winners in identifying and interviewing for internship and job opportunities at WBC member firms.
