The Richard B. Wagner Memorial Scholarship is now accepting applications with a deadline of June 30, 2019.
The Richard B. Wagner Memorial Scholarship Fund was established jointly by the CFP Board Center for Financial Planning and The Financial Planning Association® (FPA®) in an effort to advance and diversify the CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ professional workforce.
The scholarship is for individuals seeking the CFP® certification who can demonstrate financial need, and are from underrepresented populations within the financial services profession (race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, and/or disability). The scholarship is for up to $5,000 toward a CFP Board Registered Certificate Program. Recipients will have up to 6 months to enroll in a program and will need to complete their program within two years in order to receive their full award. Those planning to enroll in a coursework program or already enrolled in a program are encouraged to apply.
