Robert Toigo Foundation Fellowship
The Robert Toigo Foundation supports the ongoing advancement of exceptional minority business degree students and alumni within the finance industry through scholarships, mentoring, internships and job placement. Sourcing talent from the nation's leading academic and financial institutions, the foundation's goal is to increase diversity in business and deepen business leadership skills by promoting ethics, integrity, and community service through the careers of
talented minorities. The foundation achieves these goals by providing the mentoring, networking and leadership skill development necessary for minority students to pursue careers within finance and the financial services industry.
Fellows receive financial support while pursuing their MBAs; and, more importantly, gain access to industry leaders and career opportunities. Many of the Fellows are the first in their families to attend college, to speak English and to hold a management position in business.
Twenty years ago, minority leadership at the highest levels of corporate America was virtually non-existent. The lack of leadership within the financial services industry was particularly poor. While there has been an increase in minority leadership, it remains visibly is proportionate to the potential for talented minorities to lead in todayís global marketplace. Since its founding in 1989, the Robert Toigo Foundation has been dedicated to changing the face of the financial services industry.
