Getting Involved

Each Fall, Lion Fund accepts new applicants. The application process involves a written application and several rounds of interviews. We look for candidates that have a passion for investing and a strong desire to learn. While real world experience is certainly a plus, we recognize that many students do not have experience in the financial services industry and Lion Fund has accepted numerous students without prior investment experience or knowledge. Naturally, the process is competitive: in 2017, we accepted 10 applicants from pool of over 170; regardless, we encourage all current Columbia students to apply. Please contact Saurabh Goel at if you have any questions about the process. If you would like to be updated on the next rounds of applications make sure to "like" us on Facebook at
