  • What does it take to become a Girls Who Invest Scholar? Girls Who Invest scholars are intellectually curious and academically confident, love research and analysis, strive to grow and improve as active learners, communicate and collaborate effectively, and most of all, want to make a positive impact on the world. 
  • Who can apply? All majors from sophomores enrolled in, or transferring to, 4-year programs at U.S. universities are welcome to apply.
  • If they can't commit to 10 weeks but would be an asset to the Girls Who Invest community, the self-guided Online Intensive Program is a great flexible alternative.
