Equipment Leasing & Finance Foundation Awards Scholarships for 2021-2022 Academic Year

The Equipment Leasing & Finance Foundation awarded scholarships through the Equipment Leasing & Finance Foundation Scholarship program to three students for the 2021-2022 academic year. Each student will receive a scholarship of $5,000 for the year from the program, which was launched in 2020 for students interested in potentially pursuing a career in the equipment finance industry. The program is part of the ELFF’s Academic Outreach Program.

The scholarship recipients are:

  • Dawson Jones, a finance major with a focus on supply chain management who will graduate from the University of Maryland College Park in May 2022. He is currently an intern at Avascent, an aerospace and defense consulting firm. Jones previously completed an internship on Capitol Hill in the office of Rep. Andy Harris (Maryland).
  • Madison McCully, a finance major at Penn State University who will graduate in May 2022. She is currently interning with F.N.B. in its equipment finance and leasing division and plans to pursue a career in the equipment finance industry upon graduation.
  • Jagativr Singh, a business major at the University of Maryland College Park who will graduate in December 2021. In addition to his interest in the equipment finance industry, he works to develop strategies to improve deaf students’ success in academic and workplace settings.

“I’m delighted to congratulate Dawson, Madison and Jagativr on being awarded foundation scholarships and on their exemplary academic accomplishments to date,” Donna Yanuzzi, a trustee of the ELFF, chair of the ELFF’s Academic Outreach Committee and managing director of sales and marketing at F.N.B. Equipment Finance, said. “The foundation is committed to supporting the future talent of equipment finance and the scholarship program is an example of how our industry is paying it forward to make a lasting impact.”
