The Bermont/Carlin Group at Smith Barney honored 16 School of Business Bermont/Carlin Scholars at a dinner reception Thursday, April 16. The Bermont/Carlin Scholarship, now in its second year, is an internship program established by prominent wealth managers and civic leaders Adam E. Carlin, MBA ‘94, and Richard B. Bermont, principals of Coral Gables-based The Bermont/Carlin Group at Smith Barney.
The Scholarship’s mission is to help the University of Miami’s top School of Business students chart a path to a successful career in finance. As part of the program, winning scholars are taken on a trip to New York City to meet with major investment banks on Wall Street and other leading New York firms. The Scholars are selected each spring based on academic performance, written and oral presentations, personal characteristics and experience and complete their internships in the fall.
