Excellence in Accounting Scholarship

The Excellence in Accounting Scholarship of the New York State Society of Certified Public Accountants (NYSSCPA) and its Foundation for Accounting Education (FAE) offers an annual scholarship to provide financial assistance to deserving candidates who plan to enter the accounting profession. Scholarships are $2500/$1500 for full/part-time students. The FAE Excellence in Accounting Scholarship program will only fund declared accounting with at least 84credits. Recipients must apply yearly, the scholarship is not renewable. The program is administered by FAE, a 501(c) (3) organization.

The process for selecting awardees has changed. We are now establishing a FAE Campus Ambassador at each college or university in New York State with an approved 150 hour accounting curriculum. We do plan to make awards for the Fall 2006 school year.

The Campus Ambassador will work with the campus accounting department and the college financial aid office to select 3 deserving candidates based on scholarship and financial need. These candidates will then be forwarded to a statewide selection committee. Each program is guaranteed at least one scholarship. Additional scholarships will depend on the total scholarships available in excess of the number of schools that have an FAE Campus Ambassador.

Applications will be provided by each campus ambassador. A list of these individuals will be posted when the program operating
