The Department of Finance will sponsor up to five LSB students each academic year for CFA (Chartered Financial Analyst) student scholarships.
The CFA charter is the designation of excellence in the investment community. Details of the CFA program and charter are available on the CFA Institute website.
These CFA student scholarships are only available to:
Students awarded these scholarships enroll for the CFA Level I June exam at a significantly reduced cost. Since the CFA program enrollment fee is waived and the exam registration fee is discounted, student scholars pay only the $350 cost of curriculum (June exam; cost for print material is extra) plus any applicable taxes. This compares to regular CFA fees that can run more than $1,500 for new candidates appearing for the June 2015 exam. Scholarships cannot be deferred to another exam offering. The discounted fee is non-refundable and non-transferable.
Students interested in participating should submit the following:
Applications will be accepted starting October 1, 2014 and are due on or before November 7, 2014 to Dr. Neeraj J. Gupta, CFA in KoBC 222. Contact Dr. Gupta for further details. Awardees will be notified by email shortly thereafter.
