This program is designed to discover and mentor the next generation of great investors as they prepare to launch their careers.

Intern Scholarship Program

As part of our DEI pledge, we are committed to increasing representation of historically underrepresented groups in our industry’s talent pipeline.

We are pleased to offer two $5,000 scholarships to interns each year. One Woman in Business and one Diversity in Finance scholarship will be awarded to two summer interns who demonstrate our core values of curiosity, ownership, trust and respect.

Our goal is to help reverse the disproportional student loan debt gap and take action in supporting the long-term financial wellness and equity for underrepresented groups.

Hear from former interns who are now full-time associates

Yiting Liu, CFA, International Research Analyst

“My path to Diamond Hill’s internship program was non-traditional having worked in Hong Kong for a few years post-undergrad. I had always been intrigued by investment research, and the internship was a great way for me to learn and explore that interest. All the analysts I worked with mentored me in our investment process, research best practices and helped me explore careers within asset management. Today, I’m an international research analyst and there’s never a dull moment given the opportunities and diversity in international markets.”

Kristen White, Associate Director of Research Operations

“Back in 2005, when the firm was still very small, I had the opportunity to work with almost everyone at the firm. The primary thing I noticed immediately was a huge amount of pride everyone had in their work, and the excitement around feeling like we were all building something great together. People were eager to pass along their knowledge and serve as a mentor to the younger generation; this valuable cultural trait has continued to grow stronger through the years.”

David Corbi, Client Response Associate

“As soon as I started my internship, I was introduced to a firm culture that was welcoming, hardworking, respectful and was surrounded by associates that valued intellectual curiosity and respected one another. Associates were eager to discuss their roles and were happy to give advice, helping me expand my industry knowledge. The program was structured to give interns exposure to all areas of the firm, which I found invaluable.”

Kelsey Newman, Associate Director - IT 

“Diamond Hill’s culture of intellectual curiosity creates an excellent environment for individuals who want to broaden their knowledge of the investment industry and explore how their own interests and skills fit into that framework.”

Ethan Dolby, Senior Business Systems Analyst

“Even as an intern it was easy to understand why Diamond Hill continually receives top workplace awards. Seeing how well every associate is treated by the company and by each other is important for any young professional because it is the way it should be.”
