The ASCPA Student Education Fund Board awards scholarships on the basis of academic achievement, professional promise, and the students commitment to pursuing accounting and the CPA credential. The process involves the completion of an application form, including grade transcripts, a resume, and letters of recommendation, as well as the accounting department chairpersons recommendation.
Who is eligible for a Student Education Fund scholarship?
Each accounting department of an Arkansas four-year college or university offering an accounting degree shall be allowed to submit one scholarship application for each qualifying faculty member who is a regular member in good standing of the Arkansas Society of CPAs. The accounting department may decide how to determine which applications are submitted. Accounting students who have completed 84 semester hours of coursework including 15 semester hours of accounting (including Principles), who have at least a 3.5 GPA (on a 4-point scale) in accounting coursework are eligible to apply. The applicant may be pursuing an undergraduate accounting degree (or its equivalent) or may have graduated and be completing additional coursework to accumulate 150 credit hours. The applicant must certify that he/she is pursuing the requirements to sit for the CPA Exam and does intend to pursue the CPA professional certification.
