The Wattles Fellowship

The Wattles Fellowship

The Wattles Fellowship was founded in 1969 by Walter C. Wattles in partnership with UK corporations operating in Lloyd's of London, the world’s leading insurance marketplace. It is the only program of its kind, offering a one-year, fully-integrated position in the London insurance market. The Wattles Fellowship provides unparalleled international work experience which has proven to be highly transferable into a variety of industries including finance, consulting, law, medicine, education, risk management and more. Wattles fellows are trained in a fast-paced environment in one of three positions: Property Account Executive with Willis Towers Watson, Aviation Underwriter Liberty Specialty Markets Limited, and Aviation Account Manager at Arthur J. Gallagher & Co.

The Wattles Fellowship is much more than just a job; it is a rich cultural experience in living and working among the British. Upon selection, Wattles Fellows join a robust network of women around the world who share this unique experience and common bond.

Three women graduates from Vanderbilt University are selected each fall to participate in the Wattles Fellowship. All candidates receive a first-round interview and have a variety of educational backgrounds. Knowledge of insurance is not a prerequisite. Learn more on our About page.
