The AICPA Legacy Scholarships each award between $3,000 - $10,000 to recipients.

Not able to make the deadline? The AICPA George Willie scholarship program, open to racial and ethnic minorities, is also open for application from now through Apr. 30.

Also closing today, Mar. 15, at 11:59 p.m. PST (that’s 8:59 p.m. EST), is the National Association of Black Accountants (NABA) National Scholarship Program. This scholarship is open to NABA student members and awards from $1,500 - $3,000 to eligible recipients.
