FAE Awards $150,000 in College Scholarships

The New York State Society of Certified Public Accountants (NYSSCPA) and its Foundation for Accounting Education (FAE) have announced the fifty New York students who will receive Excellence in Accounting Scholarships for the 2012-2013 school year.

The scholarships are awarded in order to provide financial assistance and encouragement to accounting majors. Forty-eight college students each received a $2,500 scholarship. Three students who had previously graduated the FAE's Career Opportunities in the Accounting Profession (COAP) program each received $10,000 scholarships.
 
"The Foundation for Accounting Education takes great pride in awarding these scholarships to truly deserving students in an effort to support their educational goals," said FAE President John Kearney. "By encouraging top-level students to enter the field of accounting, we hope to strengthen the profession as a whole." 
 
Students receiving the $2,500 scholarships must be a declared accounting major and have achieved an overall cumulative grade point average of 3.0 or higher. Students also must be eligible for financial aid to receive the scholarships. FAE has dedicated campus liaisons at forty-seven colleges in New York State to help identify students eligible for these scholarships.
 
The $10,000 scholarships were awarded to high school students who have graduated the COAP program and will be starting college in the fall. The COAP scholarship winners will receive the $10,000 over the next five years toward their tuition in an accounting program.
 
The COAP program was founded in 1987 in order to attract high school students from public and private schools in New York State into the accounting profession. Recruitment for the COAP program is focused on minority groups historically underrepresented in the CPA profession.
