Today, TD Ameritrade Institutional awarded its 6th annual NextGen RIA Scholarships of $5,000 each to 12 students pursuing bachelor's degrees in financial planning, including two awards for students from under-represented demographic groups to help increase diversity in the RIA industry.

NextGen RIA grants totaling $75,000, meanwhile, were awarded to two universities that are building out their financial planning degree programs.

“RIAs seeking fresh talent to help serve a growing base of next generation clients need to look no further than this year’s scholarship winners,” said Kate Healy, managing director, Generation Next, TD Ameritrade Institutional. “We’re encouraged that this program attracts more applicants with each passing year. We believe this points to a growing interest in financial planning among young adults, which gives me hope for the future of the RIA profession.”

According to findings from a recent study conducted for TD Ameritrade Institutional2, hiring practices among RIAs are evolving to reflect changing demographics. Nearly a quarter of RIAs are hiring college interns and 30 percent are hiring younger advisors as part of their next gen planning efforts.

TD Ameritrade Institutional is an industry leader in developing programs designed to raise awareness of the career prospects in financial planning and in encouraging more universities to expand their degree programs. Over ten years, TD Ameritrade has committed to investing more than $4.5 million through scholarships, grants and other education programs.
