The National Association of Black Accountants announced a new partnership with the AICPA Foundation on Thursday that will expand the organization's Accounting Career Awareness Program. The new collaboration will include grants to colleges and universities that help in the teaching of high school accounting and finance programs.

ACAP looks to build awareness of accounting and finance careers among underrepresented minority groups in high schools across the country, including one-week residencies on a university campus with programs taught by college faculty and guest teachers. With the new partnership, colleges and universities will have access to the ACAP National Grant for University Based Programs, which is open to collegiate institutions with accredited accounting and finance programs.

NABA will also hold a webinar on the National Grant for University Based Programs, titled "ACAP Webinar: National Grant for University Based Programs," on December 21, 2017 from 1 pm-2 pm EST. More information is available here.
