Accounting Education Foundation Scholarships
The generosity of Texas CPAs allows the Accounting Education Foundation to fund scholarships to Texas college students. Recipients are accounting majors at a Texas college or university and have the intent of becoming a Texas Certified Public Accountant and entering the accounting profession upon graduation. They must have a high cumulative college GPA and perform well in accounting classes. Recipients receive $2,500 for the academic year. View the lists of recent recipients.
How to Apply: Students seeking an Accounting Education Foundation scholarship should ask the accounting department chairperson at their school for details and an application.
