CFP® Board Updates
The CFP Board announced in June that the Center for Financial Planning has surpassed $1 million is scholarships. This incredible milestone brings the Center to a total of 225 scholarships awarded. What makes these scholarships so special is that most are focused on students in underrepresented populations in financial planning, continuing the Board’s focus on diversity among certificants.
"Helping to fund the continuing financial education of those aspiring to become CFP® professionals is a key part of the Center's mission," said Center Managing Director D.A. Abrams, CAE. "The Center's scholarships play a critical role in building the profession's talent pipeline and advancing workforce diversity."
For more information on the Center's scholarships, eligibility and submission requirements, and how to apply — visit CFP.net/Scholarships. The need for scholarships is much greater than the number of available awards. Organizations and individuals interested in establishing a named scholarship program through the Center can contact Eddy Demirovic, CFP Board's Director of Talent Pipeline, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
