BOSTON – Treasurer Goldberg’s Office of Economic Empowerment (OEE) is accepting applications for the 2023 Women+ in Finance Fellowship. This paid opportunity places undergraduates who identify as women or non-binary in full-time roles within several departments and agencies of the State Treasurer’s Office.
This year’s fellowship introduces its revised name as “Women+ in Finance Fellowship” to signify its gender inclusivity. Women and non-binary individuals are encouraged to apply for and participate in this program.
Accepted fellows will work within the State Treasurer’s Debt Management Department, the Massachusetts State Lottery Commission, the Massachusetts School Building Authority, and the Pension Reserves Investment Management Board. The fellowship starts on May 30th, 2023 and ends on July 28th, 2023.
“This fellowship provides undergraduates with an opportunity to gain first-hand experience of the financial services industry,” said State Treasurer Deborah B. Goldberg. “The 34 fellows who previously took part in this program enhanced their skill set to become leaders in their field. I look forward to welcoming another group of talented individuals into Treasury.”
Applications close on December 16th. Interested undergraduates can follow the links below to apply:
Since its debut in 2016, the Women+ in Finance Fellowship has served and provided 34 fellows with full-time positions within offices of the Massachusetts State Treasury. Aside from leading projects and assisting their offices, fellows engage in salary negotiation workshops, alumni panels, and other events that strengthen professional skills and broaden networks to prepare for a career in the financial services industry.
