Graduates give students a head start
It’s been less than 10 years since they graduated from Utah State University, but Tyler and Marce Olsen are already giving back to their alma matter.
Tyler, who graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree 1998, and Marce, who gradated with a Bachelor of Science in social work in 1999, said they established their scholarship to benefit financially-strapped students interested in financial and capital markets.
Often students in financial and capital markets will go to work for a large financial firm in a big city. That kind of move can initially prove expensive and students paying off large student loans can find it hard to get ahead. The scholarship is aimed at helping students in this situation.
Tyler holds CPA and CFP licenses and is now employed by Wells Fargo Private Client Services as a vice president and a private client advisor. Marce has been working in social services since graduation.
