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:
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

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.
Through the Ritchie-Jennings Memorial Scholarship, the ACFE Foundation supports the education of students who have an interest in pursuing a career in fraud examination. The scholarship provides an opportunity for students to advance their education and anti-fraud career paths. Many of these outstanding and deserving students go on to become Certified Fraud Examiners. If you wish to contribute to the Scholarship Program, you can donate here.
The ACFE South Florida Chapter #11 has established a scholarship directly through Florida Atlantic University, Florida International University, and the University of Miami. These scholarships are intended to assist students that major in accounting, business administration, finance, law, pre-law, or criminal justice and demonstrate a desire to pursue a career in fraud examination or similar anti-fraud profession.
