Team Lead Role & Commitment

Team leads are committed to assisting the FWSF in achieving its Scholarship Program goals. Time commitments range from 30 minutes per week in outreach for actively engaged schools to 1 hour per week for other schools up to the application deadline date.  In addition, time to make arrangements for the first round interviews need to be factored. Team leads will:

  • Solicit volunteers, i.e., team members, to assist you with school outreach and interviewers
  • Build and maintain relationship with key school contacts
    • Consider financial aid, career counselors, professors, placement, mentor programs
    • Find FWSF (previously FWA) alumni for those schools and ask for their help
    • Consider clubs (e.g., CPA, entrepreneur, Women in Leadership, Finance, Beta Alpha Psi, etc.)
    • Inquire how the school can help promote our scholarship program
    • Post the 2018 scholarship application flyer in multiple strategic places on campus
    • Ask the financial aid office to add our website link on their financial aid page
  • Enlist help of previous scholarship winners
  • Coordinate, schedule and conduct school interviews within targeted timeframe (see Key Dates & Milestones)
    • Work to obtain face-to-face interviews where possible
    • Consider video conferencing when necessary
  • Represent FWSF on select campuses, as needed
  • Submit scholarship recipient recommendations to committee leads (more details to follow)
  • Communicate key dates to candidates and recipients
