North Carolina CPA Foundation Scholarship


Scholarship Value: $2,500
Awards Available: 3

The Foundation is seeking applicants who understand the critical role that CPAs play in our society and who are eager to join a profession built on a commitment to serve the public interest. The CPA of the future must have the ability to analyze complex information and communicate it in ways that people can understand. The Foundation encourages applications from students who enjoy finding practical significance in abstract ideas, have strong interpersonal skills, and are technologically adept, highly disciplined, and equally productive whether working alone or in collaboration.

Applicants are asked to provide information demonstrating that they possess these traits or have the potential to develop them. In addition, some scholarships awarded will factor in financial need and diversity.

The NC CPA Foundation has three scholarship levels. Based on your eligibility, the application will automatically default to the scholarship you qualify for.

A) All applicants must be NCACPA members to apply for a scholarship. Student membership is FREE.

B) Prior award winners are eligible to apply for scholarships through the NC CPA Foundation.

C) Students with full-time or part-time enrollment status are eligible.
