The Laurels Fund was established for the purpose of providing scholarships to female students who are pursuing advanced degrees in accounting. Scholarships may be awarded to deserving Ph.D. students who have completed comprehensive exams prior to the previous fall semester. The selection of award recipients is based on scholarship, involving academic achievements in course work and research activities, service, including any volunteer work to which the applicant has made significant or long-term commitments and financial need.
The Educational Foundation for Women in Accounting provides scholarships and mentoring, supporting equitable access to education and the advancement of women who are pursuing careers in accounting. For the most part, you may apply for more than one scholarship. Each year, the scholarship application period opens in January and closes at the end of April.
