The Bergen County Chapter of the New Jersey Society of Certified Public Accountants is once again proud to offer its annual scholarship awards program.  The program is open to all accounting majors with less than 150 credits who live or attend school in Bergen County and will be enrolled in school as of September, 2015.

This year, the Bergen Chapter of the NJSCPA, together with its corporate sponsors, is offering AT LEAST $25,000 in scholarships. Since 2005, the Chapter has awarded almost $275,000 in scholarships to aspiring CPAs, offering multiple awards ranging from $2,500 to as much as $5,000.  Students are eligible so long as they have not received scholarship assistance that has already covered their FULL tuition.

The NJSCPA awards about $475,000 in scholarships each year and students are encouraged to apply for scholarships at both the state and county levels.

Students are NOT precluded from applying for other NJSCPA scholarships.

Recipients are chosen based upon the following criteria:

     -scholastic achievement;

     -related LIFE experience;

     -a written essay, and;

     -personal assessment statement as to the reason to be selected as a Bergen Chapter scholarship recipient

As the chair of the accounting curriculum at your school, we ask you to introduce the BERGEN program to your faculty and students. Please encourage as many students as possible to apply.  Over the course of the school year we hope to meet many of your students either at our local CPE seminars or through our in-school visit programs.  We will work with them in this process and help them achieve their ultimate goals of becoming successful CPAs.

The application deadline for the BERGEN CHAPTER scholarship is December 6, 2014.  Application forms are attached for distribution to your students.  These can be reproduced as needed or made available on your websites. Forms will also be available at all of the aforementioned seminars, so please urge your students to attend as often as possible.  On-line application is also accepted at the e-mail address given.
