The New Jersey Society of CPAs College Scholarship Program provides scholarships to accounting students at New Jersey colleges. The scholarships are available to college students currently in their junior year or seniors who will be entering an accounting-related graduate program.

New Jersey college students who meet the following criteria are invited to apply for a NJCPA college scholarship. Each student should be:

  • A resident of New Jersey attending a New Jersey college or university.  
  • An accounting major, or have a concentration in accounting, with at least 12 credits in accounting completed by the end of the Spring semester, with a graduation date of December or later.
  • Currently junior-year status or above in an undergraduate program.
  • Enrolled in an accounting related graduate program in the Spring semester or entering an accounting related program in the Fall semester.

A student may be awarded only one high school scholarship and one college scholarship from the NJCPA Scholarship Fund at the state level during his/her college tenure. Payments will be made in August and sent directly to the school.
