CESGA® Scholarship Program 2021 – Friends of the Earth (HK) ESG Scholarship

As one of the international financial centers, Hong Kong needs to catch the global trend of green finance development, and it is crucial to incubate talents in the industry. In view of this, Friends of the Earth (HK) has partnered with the European Federation of Financial Analysts (EFFAS) last year to launch the first internationally accredited Certified Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) Analyst (CESGA®) Program in Hong Kong. This is an important milestone in the development of ESG professional education in Hong Kong.

Friends of the Earth (HK) has also announced that the “Friends of the Earth (HK) ESG Scholarship” will be established and sponsored by Friends of the Earth (HK) and a number of corporations to encourage young people to devote themselves to the field of sustainable finance and promote ESG development for the region. Successful applicants will be given a scholarship to partially cover the programme & exam fees of The European Federation of Financial Analysts Societies (EFFAS) Certified Environmental Social and Governance Analyst (CESGA®) program.

Scholarship Amount
Each awardee will receive a grant of HK$10,000 to attend the CESGA® examination in the ‘presential’ / physical format in the Hong Kong examination center for the 2022 March intake.
