KFS Fellowship Program

* 2018-2019 KFS Fellowship Program Application Page Is Now Available Here

About the Program

Every year, KFS selects high-achieving college sophomores (rising juniors) as KFS “Fellows” through a competitive screening process. The program works with Fellows in various facets to help increase their chances of obtaining summer positions at leading financial services firms.

  • Each Fellow is matched with a KFS Board member, or “Senior Mentor”, and junior finance professionals who provide guidance as their “Junior Mentors”. Mentors provide on-going career advice and guidance throughout the internship recruiting process. Participating Mentors include senior Managing Directors and Partners from Goldman Sachs, AQR, BofA Merrill Lynch, BlackRock, HSBC, Deutsche Bank, Citibank, etc.
  • As part of the program, Fellows participate in a series of networking and career-building events to better prepare themselves for the broader recruiting process. The program agenda includes a group career panel, networking dinners as well as resume reviews and mock interviews. Fellowship sessions are held in New York, and Fellows are asked to participate in all sessions.

* Please note: Internship positions are not guaranteed, and Mentors are not required to hire Fellows at their own firms. Travel expenses for sessions in NYC will not be reimbursed by KFS.

  • Target Career Fields: Corporate & Investment Banking, Sales & Trading, Research, Private Equity, Hedge Fund, Asset Management.
  • Program Duration: Late Sophomore – Junior year (from March through June of the following year).
