Many students state they are interested in financial services careers because of the opportunity to help others (including people in their own communities) build wealth, the independent and entrepreneurial working environment, and potential for high pay. FARE members are fully committed to helping HBCU students and diverse professionals achieve this reality.

FARE helps HBCU students and financial professionals rise above these challenges.
In the increasingly complex world of financial services, the key to success is being better prepared than your competition.
FARE financial services firms are actively hiring diverse talent for internship positions and full-time opportunities.
FARE financial services firms are willing to visit your HBCU to present relevant workshops and seminars (i.e. key terminology and industry trends) to students in the school of business and/or other related fields.
FARE financial services firms and industry organizations enjoy hosting lunch while networking with HBCU students and providing them with career building strategies, LinkedIn best practices and professional development resources. These sessions help FARE build relationships with talented students and help them prepare for careers in financial services.
FARE financial services firms and industry partners strive to create pathways for HBCU students to learn about and experience opportunities in the financial services industry. We are ready to sponsor and host an “HBCU Live” Educational Series Event on your HBCU Campus, featuring a dedicated and FARE-firm sponsored career fair, financial wellness educational sessions, networking reception, DJ and photobooth to capture the moment. Firm professionals will engage directly with HBCU students to share their paths toward success in the industry.
FARE Member Firms have the unique opportunity to connect with our students and financial professionals through developmental experiences such as internships, webinars, and thought leadership.
