CFA Society that doesn't offer CFA scholarship..

What scholarships do, is reduce the cost to aroudn USD300 and you are eligible if you program is not paid for by an employer. Ok, so I contacted my local society (*cough* hint look at my email address). For L1, I obtained a CFA student scholarship from my university upon application because of my academic grades and financial need. However, I’m writing L2 in 30 days and I it took 1.5 months and 3 follow-ups for the society to tell me they “gave their 10 scholarships/yr away to other societies”. Anyone have experience with these CFA Soceity Scholarships? The board of my local society is not offering these at the moment. Should I try next year to apply to other societies?
