  Incentives and Scholarships

One of the ACFE PNW Chapter's primary goals is to provide support for students and professionals to further their education in fraud examination and it supports aspiring professionals and students with opportunities to apply for the CFE Incentive Program and Chapter Scholarships. 

Certification Incentives

The PNW Chapter provides an Incentive Award to encourage members to obtain the Certified Fraud Examiner (CFE) professional certification from the ACFE. Each calendar year (January 1 – December 31) the Board will recognize one associate member who becomes a Certified Fraud Examiner during that year, by granting them an award of not more than $500 to help defray the cost of obtaining the CFE professional designation. Visit the CFE Incentive Page for more information.

There are two scholarship programs available to full-time university students seeking a major or minor in accounting, business administration, finance, or criminal justice programs in the Pacific Northwest. The following is a quick comparison of the two scholarships. More details are outlined in the links below.
