College Scholarships

The WICPA Educational Foundation supports a college scholarship program with two different scholarships of up to $2,500 that are available to multiple students. Scholarships are awarded based on academic achievement, volunteering activities, a personal statement and letters of recommendation.

To be eligible, an applicant must:

  • Be a resident of Wisconsin and a U.S. citizen.
  • Have full-time student status with a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher at a college or university that has an accounting program that qualifies to sit for the CPA Exam.
  • Have completed 120 credit hours of a degree program that qualifies to sit for the CPA Exam but not yet completed the 150-hour requirement.

Recipients will be announced and notified in April, with scholarships distributed to recipients by September.

*After receiving a scholarship, if an applicant's situation changes to make him or her ineligible, the WICPA Educational Foundation must be notified in writing immediately at: WICPA Educational Foundation, W233N2080 Ridgeview Parkway, Suite 201, Waukesha, WI 53188. If a scholarship recipient has received the awarded amount and fails to notify the WICPA Educational Foundation of a change in eligibility or chooses to use scholarship funds not according to the scholarship guidelines, the WICPA Educational Foundation reserves the right to pursue legal actions to receive reimbursement, including, but not less than, the scholarship amount awarded.
