Washington, DC, February 5, 2024—The Equipment Leasing & Finance Foundation is accepting applications for its scholarship program for the 2024-2025 academic year. Up to 10 scholarships of $5,000 each will be awarded to full-time undergraduate or full-time graduate students interested in pursuing a career in the equipment finance industry who are majoring in business, economics, finance, or a related discipline.
This year marks five years since the launch of the Foundation scholarship program, which supports the Foundation’s mission to attract new and diverse talent to the industry. Nineteen students have received scholarships during the first four years of the program. The increase in the number of scholarships being awarded from five to 10 this year is the result of a donation from the Equipment Leasing and Finance Association (ELFA).
To be eligible for consideration for a scholarship in 2024, candidates must submit their applications online by May 10, 2024, and must:
- Be a full-time undergraduate student, or full-time graduate student, as defined by the accredited educational institution they are attending;
