The AltFinance Fellowship powered by MLT will introduce students to investing and operations and tap into their entrepreneurial spirit—key elements of a career in the alternative investment industry.
The alternative investment industry is an exciting form of finance outside the traditional system. It provides access to leverage a greater portion of capital and asset classes and an opportunity to enter a growing part of the global economy. The AltFinance Fellowship provides fellows with a personalized roadmap, skills building, and connections to be competitive in a career in the alternative investment industry.
This multi-year fellowship is open to current sophomores and juniors attending Clark Atlanta University, Howard University, Morehouse College and Spelman College who have not committed to a Summer 2022 internship. Students with a 3.3 GPA or higher are considered most competitive.
The priority deadline for the applications is November 1, 2021. The final deadline for applications is November 15, 2021. Fellows will be selected in December 2021.Apply Now
