The Equipment Leasing & Finance Foundation named the five winners of this year’s The Equipment Leasing & Finance Foundation Scholarship, a program for students interested in potentially pursuing a career in the equipment finance industry. Each student will receive a scholarship of $5,000 for the 2022-2023 academic year. The Equipment Leasing & Finance Foundation Scholarship is part of the foundation’s academic outreach program.
The foundation scholarship program is an outgrowth of the success of the foundation’s guest lecture program, a long-standing component of its academic outreach program in which industry professionals volunteer to lecture at colleges and universities about the equipment finance industry and its possible career paths. Inaugurated in 2020, the scholarship program has been expanded to five scholarship awards this year from the three awarded annually previously.
This year’s scholarship recipients are:
“I’m delighted to congratulate this year’s foundation scholarship recipients and so pleased that the foundation can help support them in their academic endeavors,” Donna Yanuzzi, an ELFF trustee and the foundation’s academic outreach committee chair, as well as senior vice president and director of equipment finance at 1st Equipment Finance, said. “The foundation scholarship program is one of the many ways our industry is paying it forward to make a lasting impact on the future.”
