Zurich Fellows application

The Zurich Fellows is an external scholarship fund. Up to seven fellowships will be awarded annually. A Zurich Fellowship Committee comprised of Zurich executives and Greenberg School personnel selects applicants for the fellowships. 

Zurich is a leader in corporate diversity efforts. We have earned recognition from Forbes as one of the “best employers for women” and as a “best employer for diversity,” and have been included in the Human Rights Campaign’s Corporate Equality Index (CEI). The CEI is based on nondiscrimination policies across business entities, equitable benefits for LGBTQ+ workers and their families, support for an inclusive culture, and corporate social responsibility.

Zurich is committed to advancing our diversity, inclusion, equity, and belonging goals by increasing awareness, understanding, and skills about the importance of diversity; by developing and supporting our diverse talent; and by engaging our employees through a variety of resources and benefits that generate a sense of belonging and inclusiveness to all of our employees. These include mentoring and employee resource groups that encourage all employees to bring and contribute their whole, authentic self to their work.

In an essay no less than 750 words, and no more than 1,000, please explain how you have in your past and current endeavors, and will, in the future, work to support and advance diversity, inclusion, equity, and belonging initiatives at your current or future employer.

Please note that only accepted students are eligible for the Zurich Fellows program. If you have not already done so, please submit your admissions application and supplemental documents at grad.stjohns.edu/apply.
