FAAA Scholarships Program

The FAAA strongly supports the education and upskilling of all financial planners and prospective financial planners.

The many education initiatives of the FAAA include the CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER® designation, accreditation of hundreds of hours of Continuing Professional Development (CPD), accreditation and mapping of tertiary education providers’ courses via the Financial Planning Education Council (FPEC) and the support of a research journal dedicated to financial planning (FPRJ).

During 2022 and 2023, the FAAA were proud to administer a scholarship program of over $2.2m, on behalf of generous donors and grant schemes, to provide wider access to these education opportunities. This program has now closed.
