The NC CPA Foundation partners with NCACPA to support accounting students at all points of their journeys to becoming CPAs.
So far, we’ve awarded more than $2 million in scholarships to nearly 1,700 students in North Carolina (YAY!).
But, we’re just getting started!
In order to attract and retain top talent, we’re expanding our reach to support students at various education levels. We will provide scholarships to students in:
Community college ($1,500 each) | Undergraduate ($2,000 each) | Graduate ($2,500)
Because challenges like these are affecting our talent pool…
Competition: Increased STEM programming in high schools and smaller graduating classes
Cost: Rising costs of higher education and CPA fees
Teacher Shortage: We’re facing a national shortage of tenured faculty
Insufficient Demand: Competition is at an all-time high as businesses prepare for the surge of Baby Boomer retirements
Diversity Deficiency: Firms lack diversity as the nature of work evolves with the widening talent gap
We want to support our profession by…
Broadening our reach, to students at all points in the pipeline, we aim to provide $150,000 to students in 2019.
How YOU can help
By providing scholarship opportunities to individuals at all points in the pipeline, we enable the profession to successfully attract and retain top talent.
