The purpose of the NAPFA Women’s Initiative is to attract, support, educate, and develop women as leaders within the financial advisory profession and to raise awareness of the need for more female advisors. Currently, women make up 25% of all financial advisors in the profession. We hope this scholarship opportunity will encourage more women to explore this profession.
