AICPA/Accountemps Student Scholarship is one of four awards provided through the AICPA Legacy Scholars program. All applications must be completed and submitted by the deadline to be considered. Students interested in being considered for more than one AICPA Legacy Scholarship award need only complete one application—applicants will be evaluated for all awards for which they are eligible.
Scholarship aid may be used only for the payment of expenses that directly relate to obtaining an accounting education (e.g.; tuition, fees, room and board, and/or books and materials). Awards are non-renewable and past recipients may not re-apply. Payments are sent directly to the student's financial aid office on behalf of the student.
Accountemps is proud to sponsor the AICPA/Accountemps Student Scholarship Award, providing financial assistance to outstanding accounting students who demonstrate potential to become leaders in the CPA profession.
A Robert Half company, Accountemps is a specialized temp agency for accounting, finance and bookkeeping professionals. Robert Half, the parent company of Accountemps, also contributes to the AICPA Scholarship Award for Minority Accounting Students.
