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.
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.
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!
