This scholarship is offered in conjunction with the CFA Institute. This form must be completed alongside the verification form required by the CFA Institute (also attached to the Scholarships e-mail from the CFA Society of Melbourne) . A limited number of scholarships are available for the June and December exams each year, for all three levels of the CFA exam.

Scholarship recipients pay only curriculum and shipping costs (US$250/eBook, $310/print, or $340/eBook and print) plus any applicable taxes and import duties. Scholarships cannot be deferred to another exam offering. Candidates who have enrolled/registered for the current exam prior to award of a scholarship will receive a refund of the fees paid except curriculum and shipping fees and any taxes and import duties.
