Fort Hays State University has participated in the Financial Planning Challenge (formerly the Ameriprise Financial Planning Invitational), the national collegiate financial planning championship, from 2001 until 2008 and again in 2010 and 2011 (there was not a competition in 2009). The competition, sponsored by the Academy of Financial Services (AFS), Ameriprise Financial (Founding Corporate Partner), Certified Financial Planner Board of Standards, Inc. (CFP Board), and the Financial Planning Association® (FPA®), is open to universities that have CFP Board-registered undergraduate programs in financial planning. The competition has three phases: a written financial plan, an oral presentation of the plan, and a game show competition. The teams with the top eight written financial plans in the country advance to the finals to present their plans and participate in the game show. Fort Hays has been in the top five in the nation every year it competed.
