15 July 2016
UTS Business School finance student Jaslyn Ng has been awarded the Royal Bank of Canada Women in Finance Scholarship (Undergraduate).
The scholarship is offered to outstanding female students commencing their second year of study in the Bachelor of Business with a Finance major, and includes $5, 000 of academic support per year for two years, as well as a temporary paid work placement at Royal Bank of Canada.
“I am extremely grateful to receive this scholarship, and hope to further its purpose in encouraging and supporting the progress of women within the finance industry,” Ng says.
The scholarship will certainly provide additional motivation to accomplish myself academically and career-wise. I am looking forward to taking up the internship opportunity with RBC.”
The purpose of the Royal Bank of Canada Women in Finance Scholarship is to advance the progression of women in finance through rewarding talented female students.
“RBC has a global commitment to fostering workplace diversity and supporting women in the banking and finance industry," RBC’s Head of Operational Risk Analysis and Management, Asia Pacific, Jo Tornatore-Gallo, says.
"Through this partnership with UTS, we aim to recognise and reward outstanding candidates.”
Ng hopes the scholarship will help her develop proficiency in languages other than English, an increasingly valuable skill in the interconnected commercial environment but also an opportunity to explore: “I have a general wanderlust to see the world!” she says.
Eventually, Ng wants to work in an area that combines her two areas of study, finance and law.
“My long-term goal would be to become involved in the area of financial regulation, and being able to improve the efficiency, effectiveness, and transparency of financial systems through that involvement.
“At present, I am keen to get a broad range of experience, attain a general foundation in and feel for the industry, and continue to progress and learn from there.”
