CFA Scholarships


The Finance department is encouraging graduating seniors to take CFA Level I exam as a means of distinguishing themselves in the job market. The CFA charter is highly valued for many investment-related jobs. However, the cost of the CFA exam, along with supplementary materials is in excess of $2,000 besides the extra academic effort that is required to prepare for the exam. The high cost, especially for students, is a deterrent. We believe that scholarships of $1,500 each will make the cost more reasonable and create an incentive for more students to take the exam. If appropriate, a donor can lay down additional criteria for selection of students for this scholarship.


$1,500 per scholarship per year. The scholarship will be awarded at the Awards banquet every year.
