Introducing the 2023 IVCA Scholars  

July 12, 2023

The IVCA Scholar Program creates an inclusive industry with more gender, racial and ethnic diversity by providing students exposure to possible careers in the venture capital/private equity industry. Scholars spend 10-weeks doing a deep dive into the industry with significant exposure at their firms.  Additional time is spent educating the students on the depth and strength of the Chicagoland community by showcasing firms, career paths and providing networking opportunities, including attendance at the IPDF Golf Invitational.  In its 12th year, this year’s class is the largest to date!
