Missouri Society of CPAs Scholarships
Each year the MSCPA’s Educational Foundation awards approximately $40,000 in scholarships to students who are majoring in accounting at Missouri universities/colleges.
High school seniors are awarded $500, and college students earn $1,000 to use toward their accounting education. A minority scholarship is also offered, and recipients receive $1,250. The highest-rated college applicant is presented the Don Breimeier Memorial Scholarship, which is an additional $1,000.
Applicants must be:
MSCPA college or high school student members, which is free of charge and can be obtained online;
Recommended by an educator or school administrator;
Missouri residents and a U.S. citizen (or child of an MSCPA member);
Enrolled in at least 12 course hours at a college/university in Missouri (high school seniors enrolled upon graduation); and
Declared as an accounting major.
Winners are selected based on a point system, rating their GPA, educator recommendation, leadership potential (honors, awards and activities), and essay. In addition, ACT/SAT score is factored in for high school seniors.
