Apr 04, 2014

Claflin University junior business majors and Alice Carson Tisdale Honors College students Queeneth Odimegwu and Durontez Washington have been selected for the prestigious United Negro College Fund Gateway to Leadership Program.

The paid 8- to 10-week internships pay $1,000 per week and include work at such Money Management Institute financial service members as Brinker Capital, Dreyfus Bank of New York, Prudential Investments, Edward Jones and New York Life Investment Management in major cities including Denver, Colorado; Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; St. Louis, Missouri; and New York.

Claflin student William S. Ndukwe was also selected for this internship opportunity, but has chosen to accept another internship offer.

The purpose of the UNCF Gateway to Leadership Program is to offer students from historically black colleges and universities a unique opportunity to explore a future in the financial services industry. As a participant, the students will get immediate, realistic information about working in corporate America, build their resume and start off their career with a foot in the door!

The program is managed by the UNCF and sponsored by MMI and its member firms. For more information, visit
