Zicklin Student Receives $5,000 Scholarship from the FWA
Danielle Cavallero, a student at the Zicklin School, has been awarded a $5,000 MBA scholarship by the Financial Women’s Association (FWA). Danielle is the first-ever recipient of the FWA scholarship to come from Baruch College. She was welcomed into the “FWA sisterhood” at a dinner on November 30, 2005, hosted by Kristin McDonough, director of the New York Public Library’s Science, Industry and Business Library and head of the FWA’s scholarship section.
Danielle Cavallero received her BBA from SUNY, Albany in 2001 and expects to receive her MBA, with a dual concentration in finance and organizational behavior, in 2006. She has been working for Deloitte and Touche for several years and is currently employed as a risk consultant with a list of clients that includes Liz Clairborne, Polo, and Coach. Somehow, she finds the time to take part in the professional mentoring of high school students as part of Deloitte’s volunteer “Junior Achievement” program.
Danielle was married in March of this year and the couple resides in Great Neck, Long Island. She concedes being an exceptionally busy person, but makes it all work by being “a great multi-tasker.”
In addition to her cash award, Danielle will become an associate member of FWA. Since 1983, the organization has donated more than $390,000 to 93 women to help them advance their professional education. Universities currently participating in FWA programs include Columbia, Fordham, Pace, and the University of Chicago. FWA members also engage in a variety of outreach programs to encourage women to seek career opportunities in business and finance.
