FINRA Foundation Military Spouse Fellowship Application Period Open From March 1 – 31
The Association for Financial Counseling and Planning Education® (AFCPE®) in association with the National Military Family Association and the FINRA Investor Education Foundation is pleased to announce the FINRA Foundation Military Spouse Accredited Financial Counselor® Fellowship. Military spouses can apply to become a member of the 2013 class of fellows until March 31, 2013. This program provides 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 enough to meet the demands of the military family lifestyle. Applications are accepted online and are due by midnight ET March 31, 2012.
