“We are so proud of this year’s winners of our scholarships,” says Denise Rigli, FWSF’s 2023 President. “These accomplished women come from diverse backgrounds and have shown remarkable resilience and determination in their efforts to pursue their educational goals in finance and accounting. And we are grateful to our generous donors and supporters who have helped make this happen.”
