The AWSCPA Scholarship Award provides financial assistance to outstanding female students majoring in accounting or an accounting-related field. Eligible applicants must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents. Applicants can either be undergraduates or graduate students who have completed at least 30 semester hours. Applicants must have a 3.0 GPA, be an AICPA Student Affiliate member (free of charge), and demonstrate some financial need.
Applicants must be planning to pursue a CPA licensure but not presently have a CPA, and be enrolled as a full-time undergraduate (12 semester hours or equivalent per semester) or a full-time graduate-level student (9 semester hours or equivalent per semester) for the current academic year (Note: an exception may be granted if you plan to participate in an internship). Applicants must also be enrolled in a business and/or accounting program that is regionally, nationally, or internationally accredited for the full academic year. The program must be accepted by the state board of accountancy as meeting the educational requirements necessary for CPA licensure in the state you intend to become licensed OR in the state where your program is located.
