Scholarships For 92 Minority Accounting Scholars

NEW YORK  — The foundation of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants has announced that it has awarded $254,500 to 92 recipients of the AICPA Scholarship for Minority Accounting Students. The scholarship, which is for the 2010-11 academic year, is funded by the AICPA Foundation, Robert Half International and the New Jersey Society of CPAs. 

 

Created in 1969 to increase ethnic diversity in the CPA profession, this scholarship program has awarded approximately $14.6 million over four decades. To be eligible for the award, students must have successfully completed at least 30 semester hours in college coursework, maintained a minimum 3.3 GPA and intend to pursue the CPA license. Applicants are selected based on academic achievement, leadership and commitment to pursuing CPA licensure.       

 

This year’s recipients, who will receive awards ranging from $1,500 to $3,000, represent 71 different schools in 30 states. Georgia State University, the University of Florida and the University of Texas-Austin have the most recipients, with four each.  Twenty-eight of the recipients are pursuing their bachelor’s degrees while 64 are enrolled in graduate-level programs in accounting.

 

In addition to receiving the financial award, recipients will be invited to attend the Accounting Scholars Leadership Workshop, an annual event held in the spring. This workshop focuses on enhancing students’ preparation as leaders in the accounting profession.
