CFA test scholarship

CFA Program, administrated by CFA Institute, is a professional credentialing programme for investment professionals. Beginning with the 2013 exams, the CFA Institute and its member societies worldwide are making available Access Scholarships — a need-based scholarship for those unable to afford the full price of the exam, enrolment and registration fees. 

Each ‘Access Scholarship’ will reduce the enrolment and exam registration fees to USD250, which includes a copy of the corresponding curriculum in eBook format. CFA Institute will work with member societies throughout the world to evaluate applicants on their financial need and other factors. The institute expects to award more than 2,600 scholarships to qualified applicants worldwide each year.

The ‘Access Scholarships’ application for the 2013 exams is currently available online, and the application deadline is August 31, 2012. Winners will be announced by December 7, 2012. If awarded, recipients can then apply for the scholarship for either the June, 2013 exam (to be held on June 1, 2013) or the December, 2013 exam (to be held on December 7, 2013).
