Scholarship Information

Five CFA Institute scholarships are available. CFA Institute recipients will receive approximately $850 for exam costs (registration costs are not included). Interested students can apply by submitting a résumé and a cover letter outlining the following:

  • Reasons for wanting to take the exam, including a future career plan
  • A study plan to ensure passage of the exam
  • Other work experience or special needs

The résumé and cover letter must be turned in at 610 TNRB by Friday, 9 December. A panel of professors will review the materials and choose the five recipients.

Students not chosen for the CFA Institute scholarship may have the option of participating in the Peery Foundation’s reimbursement program. Through this program, test and registration fees are reimbursed if the exam is passed and the participant was a BYU student when registration for the exam was completed. To apply for reimbursement, please submit a copy of the exam registration costs (late registration costs are not reimbursed) and a copy of the final results to room 610 TNRB. Reimbursements may take up to six weeks to process.
