  • providing a platform for peer networking and mentorship

As the most disruptive online education provider for the global financial crime, risk, and compliance community with over 10,000 alumni across 120 jurisdictions, scholarship recipients will join a dynamic global community of like-minded professionals.

Generally, the Financial Crime Academy scholarships include the total cost of the Premium Package of one certificate program of choice. 

If you identify yourself as Black, Indigenous and Persons of Color (BIPOC), or your economic resources do not allow you do pursue education, and currently seek to advance your anti-financial crime, risk, and compliance career, the Financial Crime Academy scholarships are for you.
