Mentorship Program Spring 2022
UW WIF's Mentorship Program is back for Spring 2022! Due to popular demand, we will now be running the program on a rolling basis. Starting in June 2022, this three-month opportunity will give you the opportunity to connect with an alum or upper-year student working in the finance industry. You will receive one-on-one mentorship and support as you begin your career in finance!
Both new and past applicants are welcome. We will be accepting female University of Waterloo students in any year/program that are interested in launching a career in finance. Apply by 6pm EST on Friday, May 27th if you’re interested—spots are limited and acceptances will be made on a rolling basis, so apply ASAP!
If you’re an upper-year student or recent grad that is interested in becoming a mentor for this program, please fill out the sign-up form to get involved!
