Get Involved - Volunteers

We rely on our Members and other financial professionals to serve as faculty advisers, industry mentors, graders, and judges at the BSAS local competition.

Volunteer opportunities include:

  • Advising a university team: Faculty advisers provide a link between the local challenge hosts and their university; they assemble the team for their university and guide students through all levels of the competition.
  • Mentoring students: Student teams are assigned industry mentors to assist them throughout the competition. The time spent with each team is limited to six hours.
  • Grading student research reports: Report graders review, critique, and score the student teams' research reports.
  • Judging student presentations: Judges listen to, critique, and score the student teams' presentations. Each presentation is 10 minutes in length followed by 10 minutes of questions and answers.
