College Scholarships for Degrees in Accounting

You’ve got your sites set on a CPA license and you know what you need to do to get there. The last thing standing between you and the 150 semester hours of college education you need might just be the resources to pay for it all – but you’re not going to let that stop you.

You may have heard the buzz about there being all kinds of scholarships out there for people with career goals just like yours. But if you’ve already started looking for accounting scholarships, you’ve probably come away feeling overwhelmed with all the options, and just as confused as ever about what you qualify for.

Everyone’s heard about the most popular national scholarships – but did you know there’s also no shortage of scholarships available through universities and even state professional associations?  If that’s got your attention, you’ll be even more excited to learn that these scholarships are usually a lot less competitive and a lot easier to qualify for since they’re often available exclusively to state residents.

AccountingEDU.org has put together a list of our favorite scholarships available at the state level and through schools offering accounting programs. And for good measure, we’ve also included the top national scholarships to make sure you have all the information you need in one place.
