Scholarship Background
ACAP is a trademark program owned by the National Association of Black Accountants Inc. and is held in 18 major cities across the country. The primary objective of ACAP is to increase understanding of accounting and business career opportunities among high school students from underrepresented ethnic groups. This is typically a 5-day summer residency camp where students reside overnight (under direct adult supervision), however, due to COVID-19 the program will be conducted virtually.

An eligible applicant must be/have:

  • Rising sophomore, junior or senior in high school
  • At least a 3.0 GPA on a 4.0 grading scale
  • A current, official academic transcript – sent separately by the registrar or in an envelope sealed by the school official
  • Two letters of recommendation—letters may be submitted by anyone who knows you well and able to attest to your character, leadership ability, commitment to community service, or academic achievement. This may include someone such as an employer, coach, high school guidance counselor, teacher, principal or mentor. It cannot be your mother, father or guardian, and
  • A brief statement of interest (can be written or video)
