CFA Program Access Scholarship

CFA Program Access Scholarship

CFA Program Access Scholarship provides financial support to those who may be unable to afford the full price for program enrollment and exam registration. The application deadline is 13 June 2022

About CFA Program Access Scholarship

The CFA Institute Access Scholarship Program (“Program”) is designed to make CFA Institute programs more available to individuals who may not be able to afford the full program fees (“Access Scholarships”). Scholarship Candidates may be either new or existing candidates in the CFA Program. There is no minimum or maximum income or asset level for Scholarship Candidates.

Candidates are ineligible if their current employer provides any financial assistance for participation in the CFA Program. Candidates can only receive one Access Scholarship per calendar year. Further, a Candidate may only receive one scholarship per exam. So, if a candidate applies for both an Access and an Awareness Scholarship, and receives an award, the remaining application will be void.

Selection Criteria

CFA Institute and/or a local CFA Institute Member Society in the Scholarship Candidate’s geographic area will review all applications . While financial need will be strongly considered, awards may be made based on a combination of factors, including

  • financial need;
  • the academic, professional or other accomplishments of the candidate;
  • obstacles overcome by the candidate;
  • contributions to the local community;
  • the candidate’s interest in pursuing the CFA charter; and
  • other personal characteristics that indicate the individual is a strong candidate to receive an Access Scholarship and become a CFA charter holder.

Value of Scholarship

The scholarship covers the one-time CFA Program enrollment fee (if applicable) and reduces the exam registration fee (includes access to the curriculum eBook) to US$250.

How to Apply for  the Scholarship

Log in and complete the Access Scholarship Application. You can expect a review decision no later than 31 July 2022.
