Submitted by College of Human Ecology

Miranda Reiter, doctoral student in personal financial planning, was among four Certified Financial Planners to be awarded the Financial Planning Association Diversity Scholarship.

The recipients of the merit-based scholarship are professionals who are working to encourage diversity in the financial planning profession, serving diverse communities with financial planning and increasing the professional opportunities for diverse communities within the financial planning profession. The scholarship will allow award recipients to attend the annual Financial Planning Association conference in Chicago this October.

The Diversity Scholarship program is sponsored by the Financial Planning Association Diversity Committee. The committee's mission is to develop strategies to raise awareness and promote inclusiveness of diverse communities including but not limited to: age, race, ethnicity, gender and sexual orientation in the financial planning profession. The association strives to increase professional opportunities for the widest spectrum of people so that all may join and thrive in the financial planning profession.
