Dominican University Scholarships
Since 1956, the Financial Women of San Francisco (FWSF) has been committed to the development, professional progress, and leadership of women in finance and financial services throughout the Bay Area. The FWSF Scholarship Fund, established in 1985, have honored and applauded San Francisco Bay Area female students studying finance.
This year, the FWSF Scholarship Fund awarded 11 scholarships totaling $90, 000 to an exceptional group of young women; undergraduates received $5, 000 grants, and graduate students received $10, 000 grants. One of the 11 recipients was Lynsie Ulrich, a BA-to-MBA 4+1 student from the Barowsky School of Business.
Lynsie is currently pursuing a Bachelor's in Accounting and Finance and an MBA in Global Business, while she also interns for Dominican University Business Services. Additionally, Lynsie supplements her education with real world experience as a volunteer for Tax Aid where she prepares tax returns for low-income personnel and trains other volunteers. In spite of a her busy schedule, Lynsie continues to excel at her studies; she is a member of the Alpha Chi Honors Society, Sigma Beta Delta Honors Society, Alpha Lambda Delta Honors Society, and is a seven time consecutive Dean's List honoree.
After hearing the 2014 scholarship acceptance speeches at the City Club in San Francisco, 2012 recipient Alexis Babb said of the recipients, “while they all have their own unique perspective and experiences that have shaped them, they all share a passion for leadership and service that is so contagious one can’t help but feel inspired because these women are going to be major game-changers in the field of finance and beyond.”
Beyond financial support, FWSF scholarship recipients have the opportunity to be mentored by FWSF members, attend career development and networking events, and ultimately become a part of an incredible supportive community of Bay Area business women.
“If someone had told me two years ago that by clicking ‘submit’ on a scholarship application I’d found online that I would later join a network of amazing and talented professional women and together, find the Bay Area’s best talent and recruit scholarship applicants, I would have waived my hand in disbelief.” says Babb, who is now a FWSF Team Lead for Santa Clara University and San Jose State University.
