Roshni Patel, 20, of Des Plaines is a junior finance major at Roosevelt’s Heller College of Business. She received the FEI Scholarship in February, and will apply the award toward her studies at Roosevelt.
“I am very honored to receive this prestigious scholarship. It will help me with my college expenses and will allow me to focus on my studies,” said Patel, who will graduate in 2019.
As an FEI scholar, Patel will have an opportunity to network with finance professionals throughout the Chicago area. “This scholarship will help me achieve my goal of becoming an expert in asset management,” said Patel.
