ACFE Arizona Chapter Scholarships for Members


The Arizona Chapter of the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners is committed to providing financial assistance to our membership for continuing education and professional development efforts. Each year, a certain amount of money will be allocated for use towards these endeavors. The intent of the scholarship is to assist our members with their individual out-of-pocket expenses, not to replace entity funding (no reimbursement will be made to any public agency or private company).


The Arizona Chapter is pleased to offer a CFE Exam Prep course and exam scholarship to chapter members. The CFE prep course will be awarded upon announcement of the winner. The exam will be reimbursed after all sections of the exam have been passed. Applications will be accepted until November 1, 2020 and the winner will be announced at our end of year event.

Anyone who does NOT already have their CFE professional certification is eligible for the scholarship.

To be eligible for the CFE Exam and prep course, the applicant must meet the following requirements:

  • Must be a member in good standing with the Arizona ACFE chapter and the National Association.
  • Submit an original, typed essay of at least 300 words explaining how obtaining the ACFE certification is relevant to their professional career development. In addition, the applicant should list their personal and/or professional goals and how this grant will help them achieve them.
  • Submit a written statement certifying they have not, and will not, be otherwise reimbursed for CFE expenses.
  • Upon completion of exam, submit a copy of the congratulations letter from the ACFE, which should state that the applicant has passed the CFE Examination, specifying that the award applicant has met all ACFE requirements to become a Certified Fraud Examiner, and providing their new CFE professional certification number granted by the ACFE.
