How to apply
In order to be eligible to apply for the Sustainable Investing Practicum (SIP), all students must first register for FINA 421 (Sustainable Investing). Please note that this course is only offered in the Winter semester. During enrollment, students will be invited to apply and must submit a complete application package containing the following:
- Statement of purpose
- Two-page stock pitch on any sustainable company of your choice
Applicants will then be selected for an interview based on this initial screen. The interview will be conducted by the members of the current cohort. Throughout the course, applicants must maintain a minimum grade of A- (80%).
Once 8-12 students are selected, they will have an overlap with the outgoing cohort. This will ensure that a smooth transaction can take place. Successful candidates will begin to manage the portfolio for a period of twelve months starting on May 1st.
Upon completion of the program, SIP members will receive 3 Finance credits during the Fall/Winter term for managing the fund. Cohort members will also receive a $1,000 stipend.
