CFA Institute offers the Access scholarship, a needs-based scholarship opportunity for those unable to afford the full price of the CFA Program enrollment and registration fees.
Access scholarship awards waive the CFA Program enrollment fee and reduce the exam registration fee to $250, including the CFA Program eBook.
If awarded, you can apply the scholarship to either exam in the relevant calendar year. You must register and sit for the exam in the relevant exam year or you may be ineligible for future Access Scholarships.
The Access Scholarship application is available online. Please check with us to learn more about any additional society criteria for the scholarship.
