NJ Society of CPAs is Accepting Scholarship Applications

By Press Release

ROSELAND – The New Jersey Society of CPAs (NJCPA) is inviting New Jersey high school seniors and accounting majors entering their fourth or fifth year of a New Jersey-based college to apply for NJCPA Scholarships. Applications are open until Dec. 8, 2017, for high school students and Jan. 5, 2018, for college students.
The NJCPA Scholarship Fund awards $7,000 scholarships to college-bound New Jersey high school seniors intending to major in accounting or obtain a concentration in accounting. The Fund also awards $6,000 one-year scholarships to accounting students at New Jersey colleges who are currently in their junior year or in their senior year and are entering an accounting-related graduate program.
Scholarships are awarded based on academic performance, a 500-word essay and a personal interview. High school students must be college-bound New Jersey students and have a cumulative three-year GPA of 3.5 or above, a minimum total SAT score of 1260 or a minimum composite ACT score of 26. Among other requirements, college students must be residents of New Jersey attending a college or university in the state with a minimum 3.2 GPA overall through the end of the fall 2017 semester.
“The awards are a great way for the NJCPA and its member donors to give back to the community and encourage the next generation of CPAs to go into the profession,” said Chris Lovasz, CPA, president of the NJCPA Scholarship Fund and managing director at Deloitte. “Often these recipients go on to help others later in life through our many avenues of volunteering.”
More information on applying for the awards is available at njcpa.org/scholarships.
