The COO Scholarship Scheme

The Institute of COO Professionals (Armstrong Wolfe) Ltd will launch the Black Heritage COO Scholarship Scheme at the end of 2020. The Scholarship Scheme is an initiative to address the significant underrepresentation of black heritage talent in the financial services community.


Working with a consortium of 4 - 6 global banks, The Black Heritage COO Scholarship Scheme will operate in harmony with existing programs offered by those banks and, in the first instance (“Series A”), target young talent in their final year of secondary schooling, providing insight and training on financial products, career path options and coaching to optimize success for those students as they progress from secondary schooling into either further education and or directly into careers within financial services business management.
