NCPACA Scholarship Program


Scholarship for Accounting Students

  Competitive merit-based awards of up to $5,000 for outstanding accounting students who, in the opinion of the NCPACA Selection Committee, show significant potential to become Certified Public Accountants and not presently a CPA.


Generate excitement

NCPACA Scholarship for Accounting Students is available only to full-time undergraduate and graduate students at regionally accredited institutions. Awards are granted primarily based on merit (academic achievement); financial need is evaluated as a secondary criteria. 


Scholars are awarded at the 33rd Annual NCPACA Convention

 Four students received scholarship money during the President’s Gala Night. Each student submitted an application with letters of recommendation and personal statements explaining why s/he wanted to become a CPA. 

A Scholarship Selection Committee, made up of past NCPACA Presidents, the current NCPACA President, and three chapter officers, carefully reviewed each applicant’s submission. An in-depth interview was also conducted following the application reviews. 

After careful deliberation, each student was awarded a certificate of recognition along with scholarship money ranging from $2,000 to $5,000. Congratulations to our 2019 NCPACA-AICPA Scholars!
