CFA Program Awareness Scholarships are role-based opportunities available to qualified applicants in the media, academic, and financial communities. We also offer an Awareness Scholarship for women who are interested in earning the CFA charter.

In collaboration with our University Relations team, we offer Awareness Scholarships to students attending a college or university that participates in one of the following:
  • University Affiliation Program
  • CFA Program Partner initiative
  • University Recognition Program
Additional Awareness Scholarships offered by CFA Institute include
  • Women keenly interested in obtaining the CFA charter
  • Employees of qualified regulatory agencies
  • College/university faculty
  • Media organization employees

Note: CFA Program Access Scholarships, awarded in collaboration with our member societies, provide support to those who may be unable to afford the full price for enrollment and exam registration.


The scholarship waives the one-time CFA Program enrollment fee (if applicable) and reduces the exam registration fee (includes access to the curriculum eBook) to US$350.


Applicants must meet all CFA Program enrollment requirements. Review the requirements

Awareness Scholarships Official Rules (PDF)

The registration fee includes access to the curriculum eBook and a print version of the curriculum can be purchased separately. Therefore we do not issue credits to applicants who wish to purchase the print curriculum in advance. (If you purchase the print curriculum, you will also be responsible for shipping costs and any applicable import duties and taxes.)
