Applications for the FINRA Foundation Military Spouse Fellowship Will Be Available March 30 – April 30, 2009
The FINRA Investor Education Foundation, in partnership with the Association for Financial Counseling and Planning Education® (AFCPE®) and the National Military Family Association, is pleased to announce that applications will be accepted for the FINRA Foundation Military Spouse Accredited Financial Counselor® Fellowship beginning March 30, 2009. This program will provide up to 200 military spouses with the education necessary to enter the financial counseling career field.
The fellowship covers the costs associated with completing the Accredited Financial Counselor® (AFC®) training and the first two attempts at both exams. Upon successful completion of the program and required practicum, the participant will be awarded the Accredited Financial Counselor® designation from AFCPE®.
Many employers such as credit unions, financial aid offices, and community housing agencies need well-trained, ethical and caring financial counselors to meet the increasing demand for financial counseling services. Military spouses can fill this need while building a rewarding career that is flexible to the demands of the military family lifestyle.
