PICPA - Multi-Year Scholarships

Multi-Year Scholarships

College is expensive. If you are a declared accounting major, PICPA can help you with your college financial needs.

This year, PICPA granted multi-year scholarships to 94 students totaling $295,000. Thirty-nine students were first-time winners, and 55 students renewed their scholarships from previous years. Scholarship amounts range from $1,000 to $5,000 and many can be renewed annually until the completion of a recipient's degree, provided each student pursues a full-time accounting degree, maintains a 3.0 or above GPA, and satisfies any other renewal requirements established by the PICPA.
