Applications for the ICMA Scholarship Programme for 2021 are now closed.

The 2022 scholarship programme will be launched in October, where ICMA will offer a further 25 scholarships. We may expand the scope of its scholarship programme to include other regions beyond Sub-Saharan Africa, enabling individuals from other countries to apply.

Further details of the eligibility criteria and how to apply will be made available in October 2021.

The scholarships provide an opportunity to study for one of the ICMA Diplomas, namely:
  • ICMA Diploma in Debt Capital Markets
  • ICMA Diploma Securities & Derivatives
  • ICMA Diploma in Financial Market Operations
Each diploma pathway includes taking the prescribed foundation and advanced level courses along with two specialist courses and/or ICMA workshops. This executive education programme is delivered in partnership with the ICMA Centre, Henley Business School, University of Reading.

These diplomas are internationally recognised qualifications taught by experienced market professionals which can kick-start a career in financial markets.

All the courses which make up the diplomas can be studied online over 12 months as a mix of self-study and virtual classroom programmes, and they include online exams. The ICMA scholarship will fully cover the course and examination fees for the relevant Diploma.
 
A good level of education (but not necessarily a University degree), interest in financial markets and proficiency in English are necessary application criteria. Candidates may be in full-time education, working in finance already or looking to move into it.
