    Educator Awards 

    Accounting educators play a large part in influencing and preparing the future accounting professionals.

    It is for that reason that the AICPA facilitates and bestows the following five awards to recognize outstanding curriculum and achievement as academic stewards to the accounting profession.





    Effective Learning Strategies Curriculum Awards
    The AICPA recognizes professors as champions of education and inspirers to thousands of college students. Professors are encouraged to submit their most innovative accounting course teaching techniques for the opportunity to earn an award.

    There are three Effective Learning Strategies Awards professors can apply for:
    Each innovative teaching lesson plan submitted will be considered for one award category. The finalist(s) in all three award categories will be asked to present their work at the American Accounting Association Conference on Teaching and Learning in Accounting (CTLA), receive a plaque and an AICPA funded award totaling $2,500.

    To apply for the Effective Learning Strategies Curriculum Award, first you must submit a proposal and be accepted to  present at the AAA for the Effective Learning Strategies poster session.


    Achievement Awards
    AICPA Distinguished Achievement in Accounting Education Award
    The Distinguished Achievement in Accounting Education Award recognizes full-time college accounting educators distinguished for excellence in teaching and for national prominence in the accounting profession.
