About ACAMS Scholarships
At ACAMS, our community is a reflection of who we were, who we are, and who we hope to be. We are working to drive long-term change that allows diverse perspectives to flourish. This includes creating opportunities for Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) professionals pursuing a career in financial crime prevention.
Our scholarships are part of our wider diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) commitment - empowering professionals from diverse backgrounds to advance their financial crime prevention careers. Through our scholarships, we aim to advance the personal and professional development of aspiring BIPOC compliance professionals by:
- creating opportunities for them to acquire globally recognized qualifications
- helping strengthen their compliance toolkit in understanding emerging topics and trends in anti-financial crime
- providing a platform for peer networking and mentorship
As the largest international membership organization with over 90,000 members across 180 jurisdictions, scholarship recipients will join a dynamic global community of like-minded professionals.
Generally, the ACAMS scholarships include the total cost of the exam package (including study materials) and a one-year ACAMS membership. However, inclusions may vary depending on each scholarship award, and we invite you to refer to the dedicated scholarship award page for more information.
If you identify yourself as Black, Indigenous and Persons of Color (BIPOC), and currently seek to advance your anti-financial crime career, the ACAMS scholarships are for you.
