ATLAS Fellows

Each newsletter this summer, we have been highlighting the different opportunities RTSWS students and alumnae are participating in. These opportunities offer a chance to explore different sectors within finance, build valuable career skills and expand their professional networks.
This newsletter features the ATLAS Fellows program, an organization aimed at making the finance industry more accessible to talented people, regardless of background by bringing together brilliant young people who have traditionally been under-represented in finance.

Six RTSWS seniors were selected as part of the upcoming class of ATLAS Fellows. As Fellows, they will receive financial support, mentorship, professional networking opportunities and resources throughout their undergraduate years to jump-start their careers in finance. It all kicks off this summer, as six RTSWS Alumnae will begin their journey with internships at Balyasny Asset Management.

ATLAS Fellows Director of College and Career Success Emil Kim shares, "All of our Fellows receive our Four “Ships” – Scholarship (up to 20k per year), Internship (placed in up to four summer internships), Mentorship (matched with caring, industry veterans), and Membership (into the growing ATLAS community)."

"In the all important first year of ATLAS programming, we focus on building a strong foundation of knowledge, skills, and confidence by placing all of our first-year interns at Balyasny Asset Management with caring, trained mentor-managers.  First-year Fellows also receive training in Excel, coding, basic financial knowledge and much more!"
