Rapid Finance Scholarship Program

Helping to develop tomorrow's finance professionals

At Rapid Finance, we want to help future finance professionals to achieve academic success. With this in mind, every year, we offer a $2,000 scholarship to commerce and business students. The scholarship, awarded for initiative and forward-thinking, helps students to afford the essentials they need to excel.

The purpose of our scholarship program

We want to recognise excellence in the fields of commerce and business studies. And to reward students for their hard work and willingness to engage in an on-going dialogue within the financial sector.

To this end, we provide a selected student with $2000 which can be used to help cover course costs. Additionally, this money can be used to purchase relevant textbooks, research materials and technical equipment.

On completion of their studies, students recognised under the Rapid Finance Scholarship Program may also be considered for an internship with us or even full-time employment.

Congratulations to Josephine Fung, the winner of the 2016 Rapid Finance Scholarship Program!
