The Accounting Scholarship Foundation of the Connecticut Society of CPAs (CTCPA) has established a competitive merit-based scholarship to assist Connecticut high school seniors planning to pursue an accounting career in financing their post-secondary education. The Accounting Scholarship Foundation will be offering at most, 10 scholarships of $500 each to selected recipients. Up to two students per participating high school may be recommended and apply for this scholarship.
All applicants must submit a completed application to the Accounting Scholarship Foundation by Monday, April 1, 2019 (11:59PM EST). Incomplete applications will not be accepted for review by the Educational Trust Fund.
A student may save his/her application and make changes up to April 1, 2019 at 11:59 p.m. EST. Once the applicant clicks the “submit application” button, no further changes can be made.
Applications will be reviewed by the Trustees of the Accounting Scholarship Foundation and applicants may expect to be notified by early-May 2019 as to whether they will be awarded one of the Educational Trust Fund Scholarships. This scholarship application will be judged on factors including academic ability, leadership and service, short answer question responses, overall presentation, and demonstrated commitment to pursuing the accounting profession.
Awards will be paid via check made out directly to the selected students. If you are awarded a scholarship, you will be required to attend an awards ceremony to receive your scholarship.
