Spotcap Fintech Fellowship program opens applications for graduate students

UK-based Spotcap, that supports growing businesses, has announced Fintech Fellowship for aspiring graduate students that highlights the need for talent and encourages the industry to raise awareness about the career opportunities in fintech industry.

The Spotcap Fintech Fellowship program offers young talented students with the opportunity to take up higher studies in a fintech related field. The program is launching on 10th April and provides a student with £8K stipend towards their studies per academic year.

“The rising cost of graduate studies, combined with the UK's impending exit from the European Union, could create real challenges when it comes to ensuring a strong and healthy talent pipeline. We created the Spotcap Fellowship to raise awareness of these issues and encourage the UK fintech industry to get involved in attracting and supporting the development of talent,” Niels Turfboer, managing director of Spotcap, stated.

In a recent survey by Indeed, a recruitment website, 20% of the top fintech vacancies and fintech jobs are left unfilled after 60 days of time, which shows the immediate demand for managers, analysts, and developers with fintech expertise.

The deadline for the award is on 31st July 2017 and the price money is £8,000 towards the cost of tuition for a master's degree or MBA. The course starts in the month of September/October this year and will be accredited by UK universities. The course coverage will range widely in the fintech sector including business management, engineering, finance, economics, and product design, among others.
