** Scholarship Candidates may be either new or existing candidates in the CFA Program.
** Candidates can only receive one Access Scholarship per calendar year.
** CFA Institute shall award Access Scholarships in its sole discretion. All decisions are final.

** Awards must be used for the exam year for which they are granted. No deferrals are available.
For Level I and Level II scholarship applicants:

For Level III scholarship applicants :
** You can purchase the digital curriculum and study tools prior to registration by contacting us via telephone and providing credit card details. The cost of this purchase will be deducted from your registration fee.
