NEW YORK, NY (August 2, 2021) – The American Institute of CPAs (AICPA) granted $766,000 in academic scholarships to 150 students as part of the AICPA Legacy Scholars program.

The program helps students pay for college, easing their journey to becoming CPAs. Funded by the AICPA, the AICPA Foundation, and partners, the Legacy Scholars program consists of six distinct scholarships awarding between $3,000 and $10,000 per student. The scholarships provide support to a variety of students, ranging from those with liberal arts degrees pursuing graduate degrees in accounting, to minority and female scholars to those transferring from two-year to four-year institutions.
