The John L. Carey Scholarship provides financial assistance to liberal arts and non-business degree holders who are pursuing both graduate studies in accounting and the CPA licensure. This award is funded by the AICPA Foundation and is intended to encourage students with little or no previous accounting education to consider professional accounting careers.
Up to 5 students will each receive a non-renewable $5,000 scholarship. (Payments are sent directly to the school for credit to the account of the student.)
