UTM CFA Awareness Scholarship!

The University of Toronto Mississauga (UTM) is an Affiliated University of the CFA Institute, which awards a limited number of CFA Awareness Scholarships each year. The CFA Awareness Scholarship waives the one-time CFA Program enrollment fee (if applicable) and reduces the exam registration fee to US$350 (which includes access to the curriculum eBook).

In order to be eligible for a CFA Awareness Scholarship, students must be in their final year of study at UTM - i.e. you expect to have sufficient credits to be able to graduate in June 2018. Successful applicants must write the CFA Level I exam in June of 2018, or you may be ineligible for future CFA Scholarships. Please send completed applications to natasha.hanif@utoronto.ca by 4:00pm, January 10, 2018.

The Department of Management will be hosting preparatory sessions in late April to early May 2018 that all UTM CFA candidates will be able to attend. Professor Otto Yung will provide a comprehensive series of CFA exam preparation workshops. After an overview of the CFA exam and writing tips, he will facilitate a mock exam for students to practice their knowledge under exam conditions. The workshop(s) conclude with a debriefing on common errors and areas to improve exam performance.
