Accounting Scholarships

Some people think math is boring, but you know otherwise. Not only do you love numbers, but you know how to profit from this love by majoring in accounting. Accounting is an excellent career path for the intelligent and detail-oriented student. After all, all those people who hate math are going to need someone to crunch their numbers for them and with your math skills and accounting degree, you’ll be able to land yourself a secure means of employment. Your interest in accounting may even help you pay for school.

When you look at the abundant accounting scholarships out there, it’s pretty clear you’ve got yourself a great deal with your academic major. From university scholarships for accounting to a large number of privately-sponsored accounting scholarships, your opportunities to fund your education are nearly endless. As a group of financially savvy and successful people, it’s no surprise that everyone from accounting departments to professional organizations in the field (the American Institute of CPAs and the American Society of Women Accountants, for example) offer accounting scholarships. Many of these are local scholarships, catering to students in specific states or regions, which boosts your chances of winning at least one award.
