  • Financial need

  • Any obstacles overcome by the candidate
  • Any contributions to the local community
  • Candidate’s interest in pursuing the CFA charter
  • Personal characteristics that indicate the individual is a strong candidate

Other Things To Note 

  • While your scholarship application is pending, you should not register for a CFA Program exam
  • You won't miss out on the early registration fee because you were waiting for scholarship results.

If you apply for the scholarship before 1 Feb, even though the results of the scholarship will come later (before 31 Mar), you will be allowed to register by paying the early registration fee.
