College Fast Track to Finance Application Process 

Forté College Fast Track to Finance is an elite one day program for college leaders interested in exploring the full scope of career options, including a career in finance. There is an application process and only 100 applicants will be selected.

Please note, students may only apply to one Forté College Conference in one city/date per semester.

Eligibility Requirements

The Forté College Fast Track to Finance Conference will bring together undergraduate women from diverse academic backgrounds including STEM, Economics, Liberal Arts, Finance, and Communication majors. This is a great opportunity for sophomore, junior (and some first year) women interested in exploring career opportunities in finance, networking with business leaders and schools, and building their resume.

Applications from seniors or graduate students will not be accepted. To be considered, applicants must have a strong undergraduate academic record as well as proven leadership experience reflected in their resumes.


The cost to attend Forté College Fast Track to Finance is free, a benefit provided by our conference sponsors.

Not only is the event free, but financial support in the form of a travel stipend ($300 maximum) will be provided to eligible attendees to help cover some of the travel costs associated with the conference.
