Charles Schwab Scholarship and internship opportunities
The Charles Schwab Corporation announced The University of Akron is one of seven partner universities to help increase the pipeline of talent into the financial services industry. The $3.5 million endowed scholarship program will provide financial assistance and career opportunities to students from underrepresented communities.
“We are pleased to have developed strong partnerships with reputable and established companies such as The Charles Schwab Corporation that provides amazing opportunities and support for our students,” said Barry Mulholland, Ph.D., assistant professor of practice and director of UA’s financial planning program.
Underrepresented students at UA are eligible to apply for approximately $10,000 a year in scholarship funds. In addition to the two-year scholarship, recipients will be invited to apply for and participate in an internship at Schwab, which could help inspire a future career in finance.
