Wharton’s EMBA Program Celebrates International Women’s Day

In celebration of International Women’s Day, we want to highlight two important scholarship opportunities for women in Wharton’s EMBA program.

Female candidates at both our San Francisco and Philadelphia campuses are invited to apply for fellowships in collaboration with the Forté Foundation. Forté Fellows exhibit exemplary leadership, represent diverse backgrounds, and demonstrate a commitment to advancing women in business. To date, the Foundation has awarded $226 million to nearly 10,000 Forté Fellows. Interested applicants must submit an additional essay highlighting their achievements in the advancement of women in the workplace. 

On the West Coast, women can apply for Financial Women of San Francisco Scholarships. The FWSF Scholarship Fund provides $15,000 scholarships to San Francisco Bay Area women pursuing careers in finance and financial services. Scholarship recipients also have the opportunity to be mentored by FWSF members and attend career development and networking events.

If you have any questions about financing options in Wharton’s EMBA program, please contact us at any time.
