NSA Scholarship Foundation awards 35 scholarships

Since 1969, the National Society of Accountants (NSA) Scholarship Foundation has provided nearly one million dollars to deserving undergraduate and graduate students who are committed to pursuing a career in accounting, helping to develop more qualified young accountants.

This year, 35 students will receive scholarships ranging from $500 - $2,000. These recipients were selected from more than 750 applicants on the basis of an overall outstanding academic record, demonstrated leadership and participation in school and community activities, honors, work experience, stated goals and aspirations, and financial need.

"Like many professions, the field of accounting is experiencing 'graying' of the profession where many practitioners are nearing retirement age," explains NSA Scholarship Foundation President Harold F. Krieger, Jr. "This scholarship program will help feed the pipeline of new accountants that will be needed in the future and it is gratifying for me to know that we have played some small part in lessening the financial burden facing so many of our students across the country."
