The College for Financial Planning plans to significantly expand its scholarship program to further support financial professionals facing the turbulent economic market.

Through the end of the year, the college plans to accept an unlimited number of applications and award as many fully paid scholarships as possible based on response. The college also intends to at least double the number of merit-based scholarships it awards during the next two quarters, depending on the number of applications it receives. The scholarships are worth up to $14,000 for the college's Masters of Science programs.

The college last expanded its scholarship program during the 2001-2002 economic downturn, when it awarded 50 fully paid scholarships to financial professionals. To view the available programs and to apply for scholarships, visit the "Scholarships" page of the college's Web site at
