CFA Institute scholarships are part of an ongoing commitment to promoting the highest standards of ethics, education, and professional excellence, thereby helping to make the CFA® charter more attainable and providing more candidates an opportunity to advance their careers in investment research.
CFA Institute offers a variety of scholarships, allowing more people to participate in the CFA Program. These are offered under five categories which include the Access Scholarship, Student Scholarship, Professor Scholarship, Women’s Scholarship, and Regulator Scholarship, with a total of around 150 scholarships being awarded over the past three years alone for candidates from Sri Lanka. In particular, the financial benefit of the Scholarship program corresponds to candidates receiving a substantial 70-80% waiver of applicable fees.
Of the scholarships offered, a key focus continues to be Access Scholarships which is offered to selected candidates who face financial constraints yet are identified as having high potential to complete the CFA examinations and earn the Charter. In addition, Women’s Scholarships are offered to women around the world who are interested in earning the CFA® charter and who do not qualify for other CFA Institute scholarships. Women working in the investment management industry are encouraged to apply.
