The Foundation awards scholarships to undergraduates who are U.S. or Canadian citizens majoring in accounting at an accredited two- or four-year college or university in the United States. Since it was formed in 1969, the NSA Scholarship Foundation has awarded over $1 million to dedicated students pursuing a career in the accounting profession.
Applicants for awards are judged on the basis of scholastic achievement, demonstrated leadership ability, and financial need. They must have a “B” (3.0 on a 4.0 scale) or better grade point average.
Scholarships typically range from $500 – $2,500.
