Scholarship Overview
  • MOCPA college or high school student members, which is free of charge and can be obtained online;
  • Recommended by an educator or school administrator;
  • Missouri residents and a U.S. citizen (or child of a MOCPA member);
  • Enrolled in a college/university in Missouri (high school seniors enrolled upon graduation, and community college students entering a four-year school); and
  • Declared as an accounting major.

    Winners are selected based on a point system, rating their GPA, educator recommendation, leadership potential (honors and activities), and essay. In addition, ACT/SAT score is factored in for high school seniors.

    Past scholarship recipients are eligible to reapply but must submit an updated application, as well as a new essay and educator recommendation. Minority college students can submit applications for both the minority scholarship and the college scholarship (which require different essays), but each applicant is only eligible to win in one category.

    If you have any questions, please contact Dena Hull at dhull@mocpa.org or (800) 264-7966.
