Oddly specific examples:

Someone wrote How to Start and Run a Student-Managed SRI Fund. What's the case for  Why to Start and Run a Student-Managed Fund? 
Given the amounts involved, its hard to see these investment funds meaningfully influencing new venture formation, but maybe students with experience running Student Investment Funds are marginally more likely to be hired into similar roles at companies and institutions managing large sums of money. How might that compare to some other student activity such as running an EA group or joining a Sports Team?

There's one of these at my university - https://www.trinitysmf.com/ which manages somewhere between 100,000 and 400,000 euros. Sponsors provide the money to help with recruitment, and students learn generally useful meta skills and develop better models of how finance works.

They've a lot of bright students interested in portfolio management and cost effectiveness analysis, so we're currently exploring running a program similar to the Oxford Priortisation Project with them. https://forum.effectivealtruism.org/tag/oxford-prioritisation-project

Thanks! Would students have learned the meta skills and developed better models of how finance works anyway even without the Student Investment Fund?
