Scholarship Description

The AICPA Scholarship Award for Minority Accounting Students is part of the AICPA Legacy Scholars program that provides financial assistance to outstanding minority students to encourage their pursuit of accounting as a major and their ultimate entry into the profession. All applications must be completed and submitted by the deadline to be considered. Students interested in being considered for more than one AICPA Legacy Scholarship award need only complete one application—applicants will be evaluated for all awards for which they are eligible. Scholarship aid may be used only for the payment of expenses that directly relate to obtaining an accounting education (e.g.; tuition, fees, room and board, and/or books and materials). Awards are renewable; however, renewals are neither automatic nor guaranteed. Students who wish to renew their scholarship award must reapply the following year. Payments are sent directly to the student’s financial aid office on behalf of the student. Applications are accepted online between December 1st and March 1st on ThisWayToCPA.com
