The Massachusetts Society of Certified Public Accountants (MassCPAs) has awarded 51 scholarships totaling $175,000 to students from across the state as part of the MassCPAs Educational Foundation Scholarship Program. The students will be honored for their awards at MassCPAs annual, member-wide networking event, “Connect 2023: Conversations & Cocktails.”
MassCPAs also hosted its second “Virtual 5K Walk/Run Fundraiser” in April, raising an additional $1,297 to help fund scholarships for accounting students in Massachusetts.
Scholarships are funded 100% through donations to the MassCPAs Educational Foundation. The mission of the Foundation is to inspire and support the next generation of CPAs in Massachusetts. Since the program’s inception in 2006, the Foundation has awarded over 300 scholarships to aspiring CPAs, ranging from $2,500 – $10,000 and totaling more than $1,500,000.
“Their dedication and talent are truly inspiring, and they make us all feel confident in the future of the accounting profession,” says Amy Pitter, president and CEO of MassCPAs. “We are honored to be a part of their journey and look forward to their continued success.”
MassCPAs scholarships are available for both undergraduate and graduate accounting students who are attending a college or university in Massachusetts or attending a college or university out-of-state with a permanent residence in Massachusetts. Scholarship funds are issued directly to the students and can be used for tuition, books, interviewing expenses or other needs.
