NGWL Award

The Next Generation Women Leaders award is a scholarship designed to recognize talent and support students who would like to maximize their own potential.

Recipients will be awarded:

  • a scholarship of 2,000 Euros (or its equivalent in a local currency) towards the cost of tuition, summer employment, volunteer work, research, or any other initiative supporting your academic and/or professional development
  • individual mentorship from McKinsey consultants to support you as you consider your academic trajectory and career aspiration
  • an invitation to a local McKinsey event or an office visit

I felt more confident applying for an internship as I was able to leverage my knowledge of the firm.

The NGWL award is intended for students outside of North America. It is one of many worldwide programs aimed at helping individuals get to know McKinsey better.
