AAAA Foundation’s LeCount R. and Jewel W. Davis Scholarship

AAAA Foundation’s LeCount R. and Jewel W. Davis Scholarship
The Association of African American Financial Advisors (AAAA) Foundation’s LeCount R. and Jewel W. Davis Scholarship provides financial assistance to deserving African American undergraduate students who are enrolled full-time at a Historically Black College and University (HBCU) CFP Board-Registered Program.

Eligible students must be pursuing a career in financial planning, a rising junior or senior, and have a strong academic record with a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.0. Applicants who are active in community service and shows exceptional leadership potential have higher chances.

Interested students must complete the requirements including the application, transcripts, and letters of recommendation from a faculty member and a professional who can attest to the applicant's commitment to the financial planning profession.

The award amount is divided into two: one part will be paid directly for the tuition and fees of the student's college or university and the other will be given as travel allowance. Scholarship recipients will be required to attend the AAAA Annual National Conference.

In 1978, LeCount R. Davis became the first African American to earn the Certified Financial Planner designation. At that time, he had no financial support while pursuing his education. Now, the AAAA Foundation, founded by LeCount R. Davis Sr., aims to provide resources and assistance to disadvantaged students.

The deadline for this scholarship is usually in APRIL of each year, and the award amount is usually $2,500.
