College Scholarships

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

PICPA scholarships range from $1,000 to $5,000 and many can be renewed annually until the completion of a recipient's degree, provided each student maintains the application criteria and satisfies any other renewal requirements established by the PICPA.

Who can apply

  • Applicants are required to be currently enrolled full time at a Pennsylvania college/university (not limited to those listed below) and must have completed a minimum of 36 credit hours.
  • Applicants are required to have declared a major in accounting.
  • Applicants are required to have a minimum 3.0 GPA.
  • Students completing their education requirements in May - Aug 2015 are NOT eligible to apply.

Awards are given on a competitive basis to candidates that best satisfy the requirements of high intellectual capacity, leadership potential, financial need, and intent to pursue a career in accounting.
