Watch as Steady Growth Adds Up
Each year, the Michigan Accountancy Foundation awards scholarships to accounting students attending colleges and universities across Michigan. The MAF scholarship program seeks to build diversity within the profession and to assist current accounting majors in funding their fifth/graduate year.
In total, the MAF scholarship awards successful applicants up to $3,000. Funding is disbursed directly to a recipient's college or university and can be used for tuition and fees with continuous enrollment.
Accounting majors in their senior year are encouraged to apply. To be eligible applicants should: intend to be a CPA in Michigan, plan to take, or have passed the Michigan CPA Exam, be a full-time student, have a minimum of 120 credit hours earned by May 2017 and anticipate completing all Michigan CPA education requirements by May 2018.
Through generous support from MICPA members, professional firms and other CPA leaders, the foundation strives to increase the number of students graduating from accounting programs and creating a positive impact on the profession. Investing in the future helps the brightest stars of today to grow and become leaders of the CPA profession tomorrow.
The number of awards varies each year depending on the amount of available funding. On average, 15-20 students will receive scholarships.
All applications must be received by January 31, 2017.
