Scholarship Description

The Scholarship Fund of the Greater Washington Society of CPAs was established in 1963. Since its inception, the fund has awarded over $500,000 to accounting students attending institutions of higher education located in Washington, DC.

Students attending the universities listed below on a full-time basis, who meet all other criteria, are eligible to apply for an award from the GWSCPA Scholarship Fund. These nonprofit schools offer either a BS or BA degree in accounting or have graduate-level programs that qualify for the 150 (semester) hour requirement for graduates to sit for the Uniform CPA Examination.

For this year, the Scholarship Fund will make several awards ranging from $3,000 for our undergraduate and graduate student awards to $5,000 each for our two special named awards-the Past President’s Award and the Sue Marcum Memorial Award.
