Transitioning from Military to a Civilian career is inevitable. We are here to help with Full Scholarships!
We aim to empower the men and women who have honorably served in the Armed Forces by providing educational support and potential follow on career opportunities in the financial services, thereby infusing the industry with a skilled talent pool.
The crown jewel of the PMCVA is the full scholarship program, which is offered to active duty and qualified veterans and spouses. This tremendous opportunity includes all of our designation programs as well as the MSFS and MSM (with an emphasis on leadership) Master program. Courses are offered in flexible distance education format, including on-line webinars, books, CDs, access to online blackboard as well as limited in-person intensive review programs.
Veterans are uniquely qualified for a career in the financial services industry because they come from a culture of service and hard work where integrity is profoundly emphasized. In addition, veterans are often comfortable operating in an environment requiring attention to detail, compliance and appreciate different cultures and backgrounds. With the increasing complexity of tax, estate, insurance, retirement and college planning, there is a real need for individuals with the soft skills that veterans have already acquired to address life’s major milestones with confidence and success.
Scholarships are funded through the generous donations of sponsors who not only care deeply about honoring veterans, but also recognize the value of a potential second or follow-on career in the financial services industry. This program is a win-win for all who participate.
