Racial diversity in the field of finance has long been an issue in higher education and financial professions.

Greenleaf Trust is committed to racial diversity both within our company and in the field of finance. To achieve this, the Greenleaf Trust Scholarship was established at Western Michigan University in 1999. Offered to full-time Students of Color majoring in Finance or Personal Financial Planning, the scholarship is administered through WMU’s Haworth College of Business.
