The Wattles Fellowship

The Wattles Fellowship

The Wattles Fellowship was founded in 1969 by Walter C. Wattles as a partnership with companies operating in the Lloyd's of London marketplace. The original purpose was to provide an opportunity in the international insurance industry not otherwise available to women at that time. The job description has changed from being mostly clerical in the early years to the only program of its kind offering a one-year, fully integrated position in the London insurance market. In recent years, one woman is trained as a Property Account Executive with Willis Towers Watson, one as an Aviation Underwriter at Liberty Specialty Markets, and the third, an Aviation Account Manager at Arthur J. Gallagher & Co.
About The Wattles Fellowship

The Wattles Fellowship offers three women graduates of Vanderbilt an opportunity to work in London for a year.
