MFM Fellowships

Fellowship Details 


Six different fellowships are available for Master of Financial Mathematics (MFM) students who will add diversity to the MFM student body.  Fellowships are funded by our generous corporate donors: Cargill and Allianz Investment Management. These firms hire MFM alumni and are committed to supporting our goal of increasing diversity, broadly defined, in the University of Minnesota’s MFM student body. In addition to financial support from our generous donors, the fellows will have the opportunity to get to know the various firms that support their fellowships by engaging in job shadowing and other interactions with the donor firms. There will also be opportunities to apply for summer internships at donor firms and other local, regional and national firms.
