AICPA opens applications for 2014-15 scholarships

January 13, 2014

The American Institute of CPAs announced that undergraduate and graduate-level accounting students can now apply online for scholarships for the 2014-15 academic year, including a new scholarship for students who have earned a finance-related associates degree and declared intent to major in accounting at a four-year college or university.

The AICPA Foundation Two-Year Transfer Scholarship awards $1,000 to recipients who have earned an associate’s degree in business, accounting, finance or economics with a declared intent to major in accounting at a four-year college or university.

“The AICPA recognizes that education is not one-size-fits-all, and everyone takes their own path to becoming a CPA,” stated Scott Moore, AICPA director, student and professional pathways. “By expanding our scholarship program to provide tuition assistance for students transferring from two-year colleges, we’re acknowledging the hard work of these future CPAs.”

The two-year transfer scholarship is the latest addition to the AICPA’s Legacy Scholars program, established in 2011 to award recipients with a one-year scholarship and offer continued benefits through the AICPA Legacy Scholars Alumni.

The AICPA will award more than 100 scholarships totaling more than $300,000 for the 2014-15 academic year.

“In addition to reviewing the scholarships offered through the AICPA’s Legacy Scholars program, I encourage all students to take advantage of ThisWayToCPA’s National Scholarship Search, which features more than 100 different accounting scholarships,” Moore said.

Students can learn more about the scholarships at and apply no later than Monday, April 1, 2014, via the links below:
