Calling for IVCA Firms to Participate in 2018 Scholar Program

February 28, 2018

IVCA is looking for VC/PE firms to participate in this year's IVCA Scholar program which will run from June 11 through August 17th.  

The goal of this program is to identify and encourage promising and highly qualified young women and minority college students interested in PE/VC as a possible career.  Through this program and other initiatives, IVCA hopes to help increase the talent pool of qualified women and minority candidates for our industry.

Students will work at a venture capital or private equity firm for this 10-week paid internship.  At the beginning of the summer, students will participate in a one to two-day training program – run by IVCA – designed to help them learn the basics before they start work.  In addition, IVCA will put together at least two educational and information luncheons throughout the course of the summer for interns to further their knowledge of the industry.

We are seeking up to 10 member firms to host up to 10 students.

Student interviews will be scheduled in mid-March.

Firms interested in hiring an IVCA Scholar should email Maura O’Hara.
