CFA Awareness Scholarship Application 2019 - 2020

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. UTM has 9 scholarships for this fiscal year, which encompasses the December 2019 and June 2020 exams.

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

Eligibility: Scholarship recipients must be a current student in their final year of study at the time they submit their application. To be eligible to apply for a scholarship for the June 2020 exam, you would therefore need to be in a position to graduate in June 2020 or December 2020.

If you are awarded a scholarship, you must write the CFA exam in the sitting for which you have applied, or you may be ineligible for future CFA Scholarships.
