    Scholarships FAQ

    Why is Visa offering scholarships for its Dispute Resolution Professional Certification?

    Training and certification programs are often sponsored by an employer. Visa’s scholarship program is designed to help support those who qualify but may not have the means to offset some of the costs of the certification through their employer.

    Who can apply for a scholarship?

    Scholarships will be administered locally through third-party partner organizations who are wholly responsible for processing applications and awarding and administering the scholarships. Current partners are based in Tampa-St. Petersburg, FL; Columbus, GA; and San Antonio, TX. Scholarship recipients must be based in one of those areas to be eligible to apply. Individuals not currently working in the financial services industry are eligible to apply. If you are not a resident of one of those cities, please check back regularly for updates and future locations.

    Does receiving a scholarship provide any additional perks?

    Receiving a Visa scholarship is a significant recognition of your potential and a great first step in a new career as a payments professional. In addition to covering your courses and exams, you’ll be provided with supplemental training to help prepare for the certification exams as well as assistance with your job search. You’ll also be notified of continuing education opportunities including webinars, newsletters and more.

    What is the value of the scholarship? Will I owe taxes on that value?

    The training and certificate program amount should be tax free; however, we recommend checking with your tax advisor to confirm.

    Will Visa offer similar scholarship programs in markets outside the United States?

    The initial scholarship program is only available in the United States. At a future time, Visa may consider expansion of the program into other countries and regions.
