During the 2015 NAIFA-Greater Detroit Sales Congress, new NAIFA member Daniel Granda won a College for Financial Planning prize, which will cover the tuition expenses and fees for one LUTCF® course chosen by Granda .
“I was excited to hear that I won a complimentary LUTCF course sponsored by the College for Financial Planning at the Greater Detroit NAIFA Sales Congress,” Granda says. “The NAIFA veterans from my office were telling me the value the LUTCF designation could bring to my business and this scholarship gives me a great opportunity to get started on my training.”
NAIFA members have another opportunity to win some financial aid for their LUTCF expenses. Last month, NAIFA announced the launch of the new LUTCF® Scholarship Program, under which NAIFA and CFFP will award two full LUTCF scholarships in 2015. The deadline to submit applications for this scholarship program is May 1, 2015.
Applicants for the scholarship must:
• Be a NAIFA member in good standing.
• Be YAT-eligible (under 40 years of age or have been licensed for less than five years as of May 1, 2015).
• Have the endorsement of a member of NAIFA.
Scholarship awardees will be notified by June 1, 2015. Each scholarship recipient receives tuition credits for each of the three courses that compose the LUTCF designation program. Scholarship awards are non-transferable and have no cash value.
Scholarship recipients will have three years to use the tuition credits. For this application, tuition may only be applied to LUTCF courses that are completed by June 30, 2018. Any tuition unused by that date will be forfeited. Tuition credit may only be applied once to each of the three LUTCF courses. Recipients are not eligible to apply for this scholarship if they receive reimbursement for course fees from any other source.
The LUTCF designation is designed to provide agents and new advisors with fundamental product knowledge plus prospecting, selling and practice-management experience. For more information click here.
