The London Institute of Banking & Finance (LIBF), in partnership with Fintech Diversity Radar, is offering five scholarships to promote gender diversity in fintech and digital banking.
Scholarships to study on LIBF’s next Certified Fintech Practitioner (CFP) course will be offered to five women already working in fintech, digital banking or the wider financial services sector. Available as a fee waiver for the course, each scholarship is worth £800.
The next CFP course will start on 7 June and the deadline for applications is 21 May.
Helene Panzarino, Fintech Programme Director at the Centre for Digital Banking and Finance at LIBF, says:
“We’re delighted to support Fintech Diversity Radar with these scholarships. We want to see more women not just in fintech but advancing in their fintech careers so that they can achieve their career goals and support others along the way."
“These scholarships aim to help mid-career professional women get to the next step and move into management. CFP is an intense course, delivered in just six weeks, and enables participants to expand their knowledge of the global fintech ecosystem, widen their professional network, and get a recognised and well respected credential.”
