How the Fellowship Program has broadened my perspective


In my first term, it has already given me many opportunities to meet industry professionals and attend a variety of workshops and events.

Once I attended UW, I was then offered the opportunity to join the Fellowship program. At first, I didn’t know what to expect, but today I can proudly say I have not regretted signing up for the program once.

The Fellowship program is amazing in that it provides you with the ability to connect with like-minded individuals who are both friendly and supportive.

Learning tips and skills in the Fellowship Program

My name is Tanvi and I joined the Fellowship Program at SAF in the fall of 2020, and my experience has been nothing but amazing! With meeting my peers in the Fellowship Program, to getting to meet industry professionals who’ve achieved great heights in their profession, it is clear that I have been given an opportunity to improve and grow in many ways! The Fellowship Program did keep me quite busy, however, I enjoyed each stage of it. I think along the way, the enthusiasm of the Fellowship staff and other Fellowship students really made the experience worth it for me.

Hi everyone! My name’s Rebecca and I’m a third-year Accounting and Financial Management (AFM) student. Some of my interests and hobbies include reading manga, drinking bubble tea, playing volleyball, but most of all, spending time with my friends! I’m happy to say not only the AFM program students but all of Waterloo have been welcoming of me and my interests since joining in 2018!

Hello, my name is Chelsea and I just recently graduated from the Accounting and Financial Management (AFM) program. I’ve just started my Masters in January and and I’m so excited about that! My three-year Fellowship experience has been a fun and helpful ride. I have definitely gained lots of valuable skills from building a positive relationship with my Honouree and taking on Fellowship roles.

Hi everyone, I’m Alina and I’m in my 1A term of the Accounting and Financial Management (AFM) program. Like a lot of other first-year students, I was nervous about juggling the transition from high school to university. Joining the Fellowship Program has been a big help because it gave me the opportunity to meet a lot of new classmates that I otherwise would never have met because of the pandemic.

Hey everyone! I’m a 1A student who has just completed my first term at the University of Waterloo in the Accounting and Financial Management (AFM) program. With everything going on, it was a unique experience to say the least, but thanks to the hard work of the School of Accounting and Finance (SAF), I was able to make the best out of the circumstance and still create a memorable first term.

Hi, my name is Ciara and I am a 1A student in Accounting and Financial Management (AFM). I was offered a spot in the Fellowship Program last May after I had accepted my offer to AFM. Back then, I wasn’t sure what being a Fellow meant for me — I was told extra networking opportunities (which scared me) and a financial scholarship each term (which was very exciting). Looking back on May now, I wish I could tell myself what this awesome opportunity would open up for me.
