Awards for Diverse Accounting Students

The AICPA Foundation plans to provide $400,000 to diverse accounting students. During this academic year, 137 students received awards under the program, says AccountingWEB.

Qualified students must be enrolled in a full-time undergraduate or graduate accounting program for the 2008 – 2009 academic year and intend to pursue the CPA designation upon graduation. Applicants must have a 3.3 overall and cumulative GPA and have successfully completed at least thirty semester hours of college coursework and a minimum of six hours in accounting courses. This scholarship is available only to students who are U.S. citizens or permanent residents and who have an ethnic minority background.
