  • The primary objective of the AICPA Fellowships for Minority Doctoral Students is to enable more minorities to enter and move ahead in the accounting profession and academe. Recognizing the fact that professors serve as role models, a second objective is to increase the number of CPA role models who can positively influence the career decisions of a college student. These competitive fellowships are available to minority candidates who have been accepted into a doctoral accounting program. Fellowships of up to $12,000 are awarded once a year to full-time minority accounting scholars who show significant potential to become accounting educators. You will be considered for renewals as long as you continue to make satisfactory progress, as a full-time student, toward completion of your degree requirements, up to a total of five years.

    Eligible applicants must:
    - Have applied to a doctoral program and am awaiting word on acceptance, have been accepted into a doctoral program or have already matriculated in a doctoral program and pursuing appropriate coursework
    - Have earned a master’s degree and/or completed at least three years of full-time experience in the accounting practice
    - Be a minority student of Black/African-American, Hispanic or Native American ethnicity
    - Attend school on a full-time basis and remain enrolled full-time until attaining one’s doctoral degree
    - Agree not to work full-time in a paid position or accept responsibility for teaching more than one course per semester as a teaching assistant, or dedicate more than one quarter of my time as a research assistant
