Scholarships at Cass Business School
|The Red Shoe Scholarship|
|Scholarship Name||The Red Shoe Scholarship|
This scholarship is generously donated from 2011 Cass MSc Finance and Investment alumna Jane Lesslie, in honour of three friends and colleagues Dagmara Fijalkwoski, Suzanne Gaynor and Wendy Smith.
The Red Shoe Scholarship will be available to applicants entering select Master’s degrees as listed below and will be a part of the Cass Global Women’s Leadership Programme.
The Programme aims to inspire, equip and connect Cass women who are or want to become resilient, inclusive, ambitious, brave, confident, responsible, authentic and thriving leaders.
We support women who want to grow and are seeking their unique version of success; a success that can go well beyond corporate or entrepreneurial leadership to include community involvement, mentoring and other initiatives. We offer scholarships for women, organize speaker events, workshops and nurture a large network of Cass women alumni, students and staff. Our goal is to celebrate the successes of Cass women and facilitate the achievement of their professional goals.
We encourage the recipients to be involved in the programme by leading initiatives of their choice or getting involved in increasing the visibility of the programme.
The scholar will be required to deliver on a project / piece of research / event that explores the integration of markets with achieving social and economic good. Examples of this might be an examination of aspects of Impact Investing* such as the role of Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) screens in investment management, or investing through a gender lens.
* Impact Investing looks at investing intended to create positive social and economic impact beyond only financial returns. For more information and examples, visit RBC's Investing for Impact and MaRS Centre for Impact Investing, or read about Ellevest’s investing platform for women.
