Scholarship Fund

The Scholarship Fund of the Greater Washington Society of CPAs was established in 1963. Since its inception, the fund has awarded more than $400,000 to accounting students attending institutions of higher education located in Washington, DC. Please consider making a tax deductible contribution to the fund this year when you submit your membership renewal... or today. Checks may be made payable to GWSCPA Educational Fund-Scholarships mailed to  1140 Connecticut Ave, NW, Suite 606, Washington, DC 20036.

 

 

2017 Scholarship Awards Program

Students attending the universities listed below on a full time basis, who meet all other criteria, are eligible to apply for an award from the GWSCPA Scholarship Fund. These nonprofit schools offer either a BS or BA degree in accounting or have graduate level programs that qualify for the 150 (semester) hour requirement for graduates to sit for the Uniform CPA Examination. They are also within a 25 mile radius of the White House, corresponding to our primary membership area. This is new for 2017, as previous awards were limited to schools within the borders of the District of Columbia. 

For this year, the Scholarship Fund will make up to six awards ranging from $3,000 for our undergraduate and graduate student awards to $5,000 each for our two special named awards-the Past President's Award and the Sue Marcum Memorial Award. To be eligible for the Past Presidents Award, students must demonstrate qualities and activities which will help them be a future leader within the profession, and for the Sue Marcum Memorial Award, students must demonstrate their commitment to community and volunteer service.

Students who meet the application criteria are invited to apply for a scholarship award from the Scholarship Fund. Students must be attending an eligible university, meet the application criteria, and submit a completed package by application deadline--March 31, 2017.  In addition to financial awards, winners receive a one year membership in the Greater Washington Society of CPAs and are recognized at our Annual Membership Meeting in June. You can find the scholarship application package here:
