We’d like to invite you to become a program donor and sponsor of the Research and Business Development Center’s (RBDC) Finance Academy. Our goal is to connect financial services firms with motivated students as they prepare for and pass the Series 65 exam.
The RBDC strives to provide BYU- Idaho students with opportunities to gain practical experiences through internships and certification support that will help advance their professional skills and career. This program helps relieve the financial burden and lack of support that students face while trying to earn personal financial designations while still in school. The finance academy will provide students a place to gather where they can meet for weekly study groups, ask questions to professionals, receive study materials, and other necessary support in preparation for the Series 65 exam.
We are looking for financial services firms who are interested in helping support students as they prepare for the Series 65 Exam. Your time and/or donations will be used to help sponsor BYU-Idaho students through a three-month period of studying and taking the Series 65 designation. With each donation and sponsorship of students, the following contributions will be available:
- Sponsor 3
- Sponsor 2
- Sponsor 1
We respectfully request your consideration in volunteering to attend the Finance Academy once this semester to share about your firm, your experience, and to help answer questions about concepts that students might be struggling with in their study material.
If you are interested in Donating to the program or would simply like to learn more, please fill out the Donor Interest Form below and we will contact you within two business days.
