NJCPA accepting 2020 student scholarship applications

The New Jersey Society of CPAs is accepting 2020 student scholarship applications from local high school seniors and college accounting majors.

The NJCPA Scholarship Fund will award $7,000 four-year scholarships to college-bound New Jersey high school seniors who intend to major in accounting or have an accounting concentration. The fund will also award $6,500 one-year scholarships to accounting students currently attending New Jersey colleges and universities who are currently in their junior or senior year and entering an accounting graduate program.

Scholarships are awarded based on factors including academic performance, standardized test scores, essays and personal interviews. The scholarship program has now awarded more than $7 million to over 2,000 New Jersey students since its launch in 1960.

“It’s exciting to see so many talented students planning on entering the accounting profession. The scholarship program is a great way to give back to the next generation,” stated Chris Lovasz, president of the NJCPA Scholarship Fund and managing director at Deloitte.

Applications are open until Dec. 11, 2019, for high school students and Jan. 8, 2020, for college students. Scholarship recipients will be notified in March 2020. For a list of eligibility requirements and more information, head to the NJCPA's site here.
