Supporting your students’ professional and academic growth and leadership skills will add to their overall success. 

ACFE membership, chapters and scholarship opportunities are tools that can be used to increase engagement, anti-fraud knowledge and support academic goals.

Ways to support students

  • ACFE Student Chapter

    Your students may be missing out on leadership opportunities, growth, career development and connections to meet their career goals. Consider becoming an ACFE chapter advisor to help students:

    • Connect and collaborate with peers and anti-fraud professionals
    • Share knowledge through educational events
    • Transition from students to working professionals

  • Conference Internship

    Many students are interested in attending our Annual Global Fraud Conference to have the opportunity to learn from leading practitioners from around the world, as well as meet other anti-fraud professionals. In 2011, we started the Conference Internship Program to allow students interested in the anti-fraud industry the opportunity to attend and intern.
