Help Grow the Future of the Profession

The Pennsylvania CPA Foundation’s mission is to inspire students to pursue careers in accounting and to provide educational, motivational, and financial support to those working to attain the certified public accountant credential. 


Recent Foundation Highlights


The Pennsylvania CPA Foundation is proud to award more than $230,000 in scholarships to students who major in accounting at a Pennsylvania college or university.

In 2017, the Foundation granted scholarships to 90 students. Thirty-two were first-time winners, and 58 students renewed their scholarships from previous years. Candidates were judged by their intellectual capacity, leadership potential, financial need, and intent to pursue a career in accounting.

Congratulations to all the winners, and thank you to all of our donors!
