Since 2016, the D. E. Shaw group has hosted fellowship programs for students interested in learning from diverse, talented leaders who are at the top of their fields. If you have demonstrated passion in your academic or professional pursuits and are curious to learn about our firm, we encourage you to apply—no finance knowledge is required!
We believe that a diverse, equitable, and inclusive work environment drives creativity, productivity, and ultimately, performance. The diversity of our employees—who they are and how they think—is a significant factor in our success. More importantly, we believe that building a firm that better reflects the diversity of the world in which we live and work is simply the right thing to do. We are dedicated to ensuring all employees—across gender identity, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, religion, life experience, and more—feel welcome and empowered to do their best work at the D. E. Shaw group.
Over the course of three days, intellectually curious students participate in unique educational opportunities that provide them with exposure to what we do at the D. E. Shaw group. Fellows participate in interactive case studies, seminars led by visiting professors, and sessions with our analysts. We typically host fellows at our New York City headquarters, though the program is currently virtual. Fellows receive a stipend for their participation, and our in-person fellowships also cover travel and accommodations.
Students with a strong academic record, a demonstrated history of achievement, and a keen interest in exploring the intersection of finance and technology should apply. No previous finance experience is necessary.
