Together Reducing Fraud Worldwide



The Colorado Chapter of the ACFE supports the education of collegiate accounting and criminal justice students who aspire to become Certified Fraud Examiners (CFEs).

Each year, the Colorado Chapter of the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners accepts applications for academic scholarships for the upcoming school year.  Scholarships awarded are paid directly to the student's academic institution.  We begin accepting scholarship applications in the fall (one year prior to the award term period) with the submission deadline occuring approximately February 1st (again prior to the school term award period).  2014/2015's academic scholarship winners have already been chosen.  If you are a student, please bookmark this page or join our mailing list to be notified as to when scholarship applications will be accepted next.  Below is the information for the 2014/2015 scholarship for which the deadline has already passed.
