Beginning in 2020, the South Florida Chapter established a Professional Scholarship Program for South Florida members who have not yet completed the CFE exam.

Periodically, the Chapter will provide a qualified member with the CFE Exam Prep Course (normally $995) free of charge! Members will only be responsible for the application and exam fees.

Applicants will be evaluated based on the following criteria:

  • Application received prior to the deadline
  • Eligibility to take the CFE Exam (click here: CFE Qualifications)
  • Involvement with the South Florida Chapter
  • Civic engagement in the South Florida community
  • Perceived need

If you have not yet taken the step of becoming a CFE, make this the year you get certified! More information about the CFE certification can be found here: Details and Benefits - CFE Membership

If you’re interested, please follow THIS LINK to access the web Contact Form or, email: Scholarships Director, Carlos Hondal

Please include your name and contact information as well as a description of your qualifications for this program. Award recipients will be announced quarterly, and applicants will be automatically considered for future awards.
