The FINRA Foundation Military Spouse Fellowship Program offers military spouses the opportunity to earn a career-enhancing credential—the Accredited Financial Counselor® certificate—while providing financial counseling and education to the military community. The fellowship covers the costs associated with completing the AFC® training and testing.

Created in 2006, the program is administered in partnership with the Association for Financial Counseling and Planning Education® (AFCPE®) and the National Military Family Association (NMFA).
