Financial Aid

We are proud to offer financial assistance and grants for students who meet our criteria.

CFI Financial Aid Application Form

Corporate Finance Institute® is committed to supporting the academic pursuits of students from low to modest-income families who demonstrate the need for financial assistance. The goal of the financial aid program is to make our certification programs more accessible to those who face financial challenges.

Financial aid is determined on the basis of assessed financial need, the volume of applications, and the amount of funding available. Eligible applicants will be able to enroll in the Self-Study program of their choice (FMVA®, CBCA™, CMSA® or BIDA™) for only 200 USD.


To be considered for financial aid, applicants must:

  • Demonstrate financial need
  • Fill out and submit the online application form below
  • Not currently be enrolled in the program they wish to receive financial aid for 
  • Complete the free Prep Courses of the program they wish to receive financial aid for. Click here to enroll in all of our free courses. 
Review Process

All applicants are notified of financial aid decisions by email within 2-3 weeks from the date of submission. Please note that we are unable to provide exceptions or rushed individual applications. Financial aid cannot be used as a rebate after you have already purchased the courses.

Supporting Documentation

CFI reserves the right to verify the information provided on the application. Any false statements or misrepresentations made by applicants result in a cancellation of the applicant’s financial aid.

Approved Applications

If your application is approved, you will receive an email confirmation and may apply your discount to enroll in a Self-Study Program of your choice (FMVA®, CBCA™, CMSA® or BIDA™).
