The Career Opportunities in the Accounting Profession Program is a unique learning experience that introduces promising underrepresented minority high school juniors to accounting and business careers. The program features a comprehensive curriculum that includes accounting coursework along with workshops on business etiquette, dress for success, and résumé writing. Held on college campuses across New York State, the COAP program provides students with a glimpse of the college experience. Through field trips to accounting firms, government agencies, and corporations, participants are exposed to the breadth and depth of a career as a CPA. Find out more about COAP here.

Excellence in Accounting Scholarship—Available to accounting majors in New York State, this program is designed to assist students who demonstrate need and scholastic achievement. This is a particularly important source of funding for students in their fifth year (when it is often difficult to obtain scholarships or financial aid). Thanks to the generous members of the NYSSCPA, more than 75 students were awarded scholarships in 2015. Find out more here.
