The National Society of Accountants Scholarship Foundation announced Tuesday that it is accepting scholarship applications through April 1, 2018 from qualified accounting students across the country.

The Scholarship Foundation is looking to recognize U.S. or Canadian undergraduates majoring in accounting at an accredited two- or four-year college/university inside the United States. Applicants are judged on factors including academic achievement, leadership and financial need. Applicants must also possess a “B” (3.0 on a 4.0 scale) or higher GPA.

“The Bureau of Labor Statistics projects that 140,300 new accounting and auditing jobs will open up by 2026, which equates to a 10 percent job growth rate,” stated NSA Scholarship Foundation secretary-treasurer Harlan Rose. “Presenting opportunities for more students to enter into the accounting profession is a top priority for NSA. We hope these scholarships lessen the financial burden placed on students by the high cost of education.”

The 2018 scholarships range from $500 to $2,500. The NSA Scholarship Foundation has now awarded over $1 million to students since its founding in 1969, with approximately $38,000 awarded to 30 students last year.

Application submissions are due April 1, 2018. For more information and to apply, head to the NSA's site here.
