TXCPA Dallas promotes accounting as a career choice. An important component of this mission is to provide financial support to senior and graduate accounting students at local universities who plan to become active CPAs in the Dallas chapter area.
In 1988 the Dallas CPA Society (now TXCPA Dallas) and Philip Vogel & Company, PC established the Dallas CPA Society Scholarship Fund in memory of the Vogel firm’s founder and chairman. At the time of his death, Phil was President-elect of the Dallas CPA Society and would have served as President in 1989-90. TXCPA Dallas Scholarship Program is still an expression of our deep appreciation for the many contributions of Philip Vogel.
Over the last 18 years, 124 outstanding students have been selected by TXCPA Dallas Scholarship Committee to receive over $195,000 in scholarships. This program is made possible by the generous donations of hundreds of our members over the years.
