for students


There are many opportunities for students to get involved with SWS on campus. Even if SWS is not located at your chapter, there are still ways to take advantage of our programs, and perhaps even open a chapter at your school.




join SWS as an Associate

To become an SWS Associate, all students must go through the Education Program in the Fall semester. Completing the program is a great way to learn more about investing in a structured setting, apply your skills learned in a practical way, and meet other like-minded individuals. For more information about this process of becoming an SWS Associate, please contact SWS leadership at your chapter.


read up on news and events on campus

Check your chapter's homepage to get more information on what is happening on your campus, including information session, seminar times, and more!


attend an SWS event

SWS holds many events that are open to all students, not just our members. We also support and strongly recommend many other events outside of SWS that may be helpful for women to learn more about investing.



open a chapter of SWS at your school

We continue to expand our growth to college campuses across the country. If you are interested in opening up a chapter of SWS at your school, please email us for more information.



start learning!

The goal of SWS is to enable women to learn more about finance and investing. As everyone learns in different ways, we hope that even if you decide not to join SWS, that you will take an active approach to learning about investing and your finances. On our site, we have a recommended reading list as well as other links which may be helpful for you to get started!
