This award is one of the awards given through the AICPA Legacy Scholarship program. The AICPA Foundation Two-Year Transfer Award was established in 2013 to recognize the diverse paths students take to become CPA professionals. Funding for this award is provided by the AICPA Foundation. All applicants must demonstrate some financial need (i.e., not receiving a full or partial scholarship(s) and/or grant(s) that cover and/or exceed one’s educational expenses). Awards will be announced on Aug. 1. Recipients must participate in the AICPA Legacy Scholars program which includes performing at least eight hours of community service per semester to advocate for the CPA profession. Through their community service efforts, AICPA Legacy Scholars enhance their leadership and communication skills by building relationships with both aspiring and seasoned CPAs. AICPA staff and their family members are not eligible to receive this scholarship.
