2018 CFA Program Access Scholarships

CFA Institute is offering Access Scholarships to those who may be unable to afford the full price for the CFA Program enrolment and exam registration.  HKSFA is pleased to participate in the screening process of selecting scholarship recipients.  The Access Scholarships for the 2018 exams are now available for application until 15th September 2017 (U.S. Time).

The Award

The scholarship covers the one-time CFA Program enrolment fee (if applicable) and reduces the exam registration fee (includes access to the curriculum eBook) to US$250.  Scholarship candidates are responsible for any additional costs related to selecting/purchasing the curriculum.


Applicants must meet all CFA Program enrolment requirements and agree to abide by the Access Scholarship Official Rules.  The requirements and the Rules can be found from CFA Institute's website at the following links respectively :

Applicants must wait until scholarship notifications occur in December 2017 before they register for the 2018 June exam
, or they will be ineligible for the scholarships and their applications will be voided.  As scholarship notifications occur after the early exam registration deadline has passed, CFA Institute offers a US$150 credit toward the June exam registration fee for those applicants who do not receive an Access Scholarship but still wish to register for the June 2018 exam.  The credit is applied during the exam registration checkout/payment process.

If scholarship recipients register for an exam, they must sit for that exam or they may be ineligible for future Access Scholarships.


Applicants must submit the application form on the CFA Institute website in its entirety prior to the application deadline of 15th September 2017 (U.S. Time).
