      References – Why are references required for the Access Scholarship application? “CFA Institute employees are not permitted to serve as references. CFA charterholder references are preferred but not required.” – So what sort of references, if not CFA charterholders could I go for?
      Currently, I just put my parents in as references, is that ok?

      @Pranav are you currently employed? ideally you would use your supervisors as references. i don’t think parents would qualify as very strong referrals, but you can call CFAI or your local charter society to verify.

      ahh i see. the more i think about it, using your parents may in fact be OK. i can’t imagine the access scholarship as being overly concerned with who act as your references.

      @DollarsToDonuts‌ right, that’s what I thought too…anyhow, no harm in waiting for a few days for clarification, since I have sent out an email…
