The Bridge Foundation

We are a not‐for‐profit organisation that aims to empower young people to fulfill their professional aspirations.


We believe talent rather than socio‐economic background should be the key determinant of personal success.


We aim to bridge this ‘aspiration‐attainment’ gap by providing high achieving students from non‐traditional schooling backgrounds with a fellowship program, which involves mentoring and workshops.

“The program was a great learning experience: it gave me the opportunity to gain invaluable feedback on my application approach as well as develop confidence in my interview technique from industry experts.”

The Fellowship Program

We provide a six month fellowship program that offers aspirational university students the unique opportunity to further develop their professional skills and strengthen their candidacy for recruitment opportunities in banking and finance.


1-on-1 Mentoring

Fellows are provided access to a successful executive from the banking and finance sector to mentor them throughout the program


The Bridge Foundation holds networking events with industry partners exclusively for fellows


Leadership and professional development workshops which are in partnership with corporate sponsors.


The Fellowship involves the opportunity for Fellows to test their skills and attain work experience at one of our partner Charities / Not-for-profits.

The scholarship program is launching in 2016.

“The Bridge Foundation program was a great platform to network with finance industry professionals and receive tailored recruitment advice. My mentor is a great coach, advisor and sounding board.”

We believe the best people to advise students are those who have recently gone through the rigours of the graduate process recently themselves. Therefore, all of our mentors are under the age of 35 and have experience working in some of the world’s top financial organisations, including:


Bulge Bracket Investment Banks
Commercial Banks
Private Equity & Hedge Funds
Big Four Accounting Firms


Note: Corporate partnerships with leading global financial institutions will be announced shortly
