The School of Business at the Stevens Institute of Technology awarded five students scholarships by financial services company UBS that will support them as they pursue a graduate degree in financial disciplines.
UBS sponsored the five scholarships as part of a partnership with Stevens, in which the Swiss financial services giant has provided funding to support education and research in finance, fintech, artificial intelligence and blockchain.
The scholarship winners are completing their undergraduate degrees in spring 2020; many have leadership experience with the Stevens Student Managed Investment Fund, a course where undergraduates work as wealth managers for a portion of the university endowment.
The following are the students who were awarded the scholarships:
Asher Mazaika. Mazaika has done three internships — two with NASA and one with Prudential — and has worked as a teaching assistant while serving in the Stevens chapter of Phi Beta Lambda;
Laura Murphy. A research assistant who has served on the Stevens Honor Board. She completed internships with Deutsche Bank and Trinity College in Dublin. She appeared on CNBC Power Lunch, a national competition among eight teams of investors and celebrities who choose companies that enjoy the best market performance over the next nine months;
Nicholas Ventrone who has completed an internship with MetLife.
