About the Fellowship Program

The Fellowship Program, established in 2003, has proved to be a game-changer. The program invites SAF alumni and selected students to participate in a unique four-year relationship that benefits the participants as well as the accounting and finance professions.

The program produces outstanding leaders and future professionals by providing students with opportunities to grow and develop. Selected from each incoming AFM class, Fellows receive specialized training, work experience, and the added benefit of financial compensation. Fellows are named after an Honouree — an alumnus who exemplifies the spirit of the AFM program. Honourees can be a living example of a successful  career, provide guidance, or offer advice to his/her Fellow.

The Fellowship Program has given me the opportunity to partake in various roles to give back to the SAF community, meet new people, and develop my skills throughout my undergraduate career. - Manav Kapoor (BAFM '13, MAcc '13)

How to apply to the Fellowship Program

Committee members will fill a number of Fellowships available for a particular incoming class with selected incoming students. The rest of the Fellowship Program placements for that class will be filled with students at the beginning of Year 2, after students have had a chance to prove themselves as engaged AFM students.
