Each year, thousands of students contact the National Society of Accountants (NSA) seeking help to meet the ever-increasing costs of higher education. The NSA Scholarship Foundation awards between $35,000-$50,000 per year in scholarships to deserving undergraduate and graduate students who are committed to pursuing a career in accounting, helping to develop more qualified young accountants.
Since its formation in 1969, the NSA Scholarship Foundation has awarded over $1 million to accounting students. The scholarships range from $500 – $2,500.
“This is truly a gift that keeps on giving,” says NSA Executive Vice President John Ams. “The money we invest in these students today will come back to benefit the entire profession in future years after they graduate and become skilled tax professionals and accountants.”
Students can apply for 2017-2018 scholarships online between January 3 and April 3, 2017. Scholarship guidelines, eligibility requirements and FAQs are online at www.nsacct.org/scholarships.
For students nearing graduation or new to the accounting profession, the Accreditation Council for Accountancy and Taxation (ACAT), which is affiliated with NSA, offers an Accredited Business Accountant/Advisor (ABA) credential. Learn more at www.acatcredentials.org.
