SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM FOR THE CFA COURSE

The CFA Society of Melbourne is pleased to offer candidates sitting for the CFA exam in
Melbourne the opportunity to apply for a scholarship to cover most of the course fees for the
exam.

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.

For the June 2012 exam offering, the CFA Program enrollment fee (if applicable) is waived and
the registration fee is discounted. 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.

The CFA Society of Melbourne also seeks a commitment from candidates as stated in the
attached form.

In assessing applications, the CFA Society of Melbourne will give preference to candidates to
students who have financial need, will not receive reimbursement from their employer for
undertaking the exam, and who are residents in Victoria and therefore likely to join the CFA
Society of Melbourne. To assist us in assessing applications please answer the attached
questions.

Should you wish to apply for a scholarship through the CFA Society of Melbourne, please
complete both the attached form, and the CFA Institute form, and return by email to
education@melbourne.cfasociety.org.


THE DEADLINE FOR APPLICATIONS FOR THE JUNE EXAM IS 27th
January 2012.

Enquiries can be made to education@melbourne.cfasociety.org.

stipulated level of the CFA program, the CFA Society of Melbourne requires students to provide
a warranty that they will not seek reimbursement for course fees from an employer or other
organisation, nor claim the course fees as a tax deduction. Violation of this requirement will
constitute a breach of The Code of Ethics and Standards of Professional Conduct of the CFA
Institute.

Scholarships awarded under this program cannot be deferred. The CFA Society of Melbourne
requires successful scholarship applicants to sit for the exam on the stipulated date. Should a
student wish to withdraw from the course the CFA Society of Melbourne would request the
