For the 2014 December exam offerings, the scholarship will reduce the CFA Program enrollment and exam registration fee (includes access to the curriculum eBook) to US$350. This is a potential value of $1,000 or more. The Scholarship Candidate must be a currently enrolled student in an undergraduate or graduate degree program at UNT. Once a Scholarship candidate has received the Awareness Scholarship from CFA Institute, graduation or other separation from enrollment with the Sponsor institution will not void the Scholarship.
