The purpose of the AFWA Undergraduate/5-Year Degree Scholarship is to support the costs of attending 3rd, 4th, or 5th year when pursuing an accounting or finance degree. Scholarship awards are presented to students who have completed their sophomore year of college (or 60 semester hours or the equivalent) by the time of the application deadline and are majoring in accounting or finance. Candidates must have a minimum cumulative college grade point average (GPA) of 3.0 on a 4.0 scale or the equivalent. Scholarship candidates will be reviewed on leadership, character, communication skills, scholastic average and financial need.
Through stewardship, the AFWA promotes and advances women in accounting and finance by cultivating relationships, securing contributions, and providing scholarships for education and career development. We believe that to decrease barriers for women in the accounting and financial profession, education and access to career development resources are essential. The AFWA aims to ensure women will have the tools and resources to achieve every career success they desire.
