3 Levels of Available Scholarships

We expect to award scholarships to selected students who qualify at the following levels:

  • $1,500 for community college students
  • $2,000 for undergraduate students
  • $2,500 for graduate students

Learn more about each of the three levels of scholarships. The Foundation awarded more than $100,000 in scholarships in 2018! Prior scholarship recipients have gone on to manage successful accounting firms, enhance the financial operations at businesses across the state, explore entrepreneurial ventures, and influence future graduates with a career in academia.

If you are applying for a scholarship, you’ll be asked to provide information demonstrating that you possess specific traits or have the potential to develop them as part of the criteria used in the selection/award process. The Foundation also awards some of its scholarships based on financial need and diversity.
