Michigan Accountancy Foundation Final Year Scholarship Program

Open Date: Nov 15, 2020

Through generous support from MICPA members, professional firms and other CPA leaders, the foundation strives to increase the number of students graduating from accounting programs and creating a positive impact on the profession. Investing in the future helps the brightest stars of today to grow and become leaders of the CPA profession tomorrow.
Each year, the Michigan Accountancy Foundation (MAF) awards scholarships to accounting students attending colleges and universities across Michigan. Accounting majors in their senior year are encouraged to apply. The MAF scholarship program seeks to build diversity within the profession and to assist current accounting majors in funding their fifth/graduate year. Several named scholarships are offered, as well as the Accountants Coalition Minority Scholarship. The number of scholarships awarded varies each year depending on the amount of available funding. On average, 8-12 students will receive scholarships.
