The Oregon Society of CPAs (OSCPA) offers three different scholarships to accounting students attending schools in Oregon. First-year Oregon community college students who are studying accounting and will be enrolling full-time in their second year at an Oregon community college are eligible to apply for the Community College Scholarship. Full-time Oregon community college students, including Oregon residents attending any out-of-state community college, who will be transferring in the fall to an accredited Oregon university and plan to major in accounting, are eligible to apply for the Community College Transfer Student Scholarship. Full-time Oregon university undergraduate accounting majors, post baccalaureate and masters program students are eligible to apply for the University Scholarship.
Scholarships will be awarded based on student's academic performance, intent to pursue a CPA career and work within the state of Oregon. The scholarships are to be used only for tuition and books. The minimum required GPA is 3.2 in accounting/business classes and an overall cumulative 3.2 GPA. OSCPA connects you to the accounting profession through CPE, advocacy, networking and leadership development.
