THE CITIGROUP INVESTMENT BANKING DIVISION

  1. 1. THE CITIGROUP INVESTMENT BANKING DIVISION GLOBAL DIVERSITY SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM Dear Applicant, On behalf of the selection committee, I would like to thank you for your interest in the Citigroup Investment Banking Division Global Diversity Scholarship Program and invite you to apply for a rewarding scholarship experience. Our Scholarship Program was initially established to increase female and minority student interest in Citigroup and has now been broadened to expand the company’s pool of prospective employees to include those individuals from all backgrounds who possess unique experiences. Students will be selected for the program on a competitive basis and we are looking for students who have demonstrated extraordinary performance as leaders on their campus as well as in their communities. Students who are juniors pursuing a Baccalaureate Degree will be considered for the program. Each scholarship recipient will be granted a paid 10-week internship opportunity during the summer before their senior year and is eligible to receive a one-time award of up to $10,000, which will be granted upon successful completion of the summer internship. In the selection process, we look for a number of the same qualities in our scholarship recipients that we consider essential for a successful career in Investment Banking. We search for a combination of academic and leadership excellence coupled with experiences and personal qualities that indicate an individual’s potential to thoroughly benefit from the program and excel in the field of Investment Banking. Recipients of this scholarship are chosen from a group of finalists who are selected through a rigorous selection process. Students of all disciplines and majors are encouraged to apply. Please note that students who have not maintained a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.5 will not be considered for the program. The written application and supporting documents are of primary importance in the selection process. They offer you an opportunity to candidly describe your background, accomplishments, academic ability, and plans for the future. The application must be your unique, honest, and private statement to the Committee. Finalists will also have the opportunity to provide additional information in a personal interview to be conducted by members of the Scholarship Program Committee. The final determination (in the Scholarship Program Committee’s sole discretion) will be based on both the personal interview and the written application. You should complete the top section of the request for transcript form and the recommendation forms and deliver them to the appropriate individuals early enough so that they may be returned to us by the application due date. We again thank you for your interest and look forward to receiving your application and getting to know you better. Good Luck. Sincerely, Caitlin McLaughlin Patricia David Director, Campus Recruiting Managing Director & Head of Global Diversity Citigroup Global Markets, Inc. Citigroup Global Markets, Inc.
