Carina Diamond Endowed Scholarship
The new Carina Diamond Endowed Scholarship for Financial Planning at The University of Akron has been established to inspire female students to pursue rewarding careers in financial planning.
This is the moment when new talent should be fostered in large numbers, increasing financial literacy and security in the U.S. What could be as vital as preparing for the future? Especially when we do that through education, where skills become sustainable and a positive vision is created. Young people—in particular, women—need to know more about the potential awaiting them.
Carina Diamond started this effort with her own funds because it is time for women to have more opportunities in the financial profession and because increased financial education strengthens our communities. To drive this initiative, a goal of $100,000 has been set to be reached by December 31, 2018, so the scholarship will help at least two students annually.
