Accounting Scholarships

Math is the great divider of students: you either love it or you hate it. If you’re considering an accounting major, then chances are pretty good that you’re on the “love” side of that argument.

Accountants have the option to work at the public or private level, as both government and corporations have need for talented individuals who can balance their budgets or keep their books. If you prefer to be your own boss, you can always try the certified public accountant track and start your own business.

Types of Accounting Scholarships

Though there are a handful of fellowships in accounting (a number of them through the University of Florida), most of the financial aid available to accountants is through scholarships.

Some of these scholarships are privately funded, while others are available through public schools. The University of Alabama, for example, offers a number of scholarships for accounting majors.

Popular Scholarships for Accounting Majors

Those looking into governmental positions should consider the Frank L. Greathouse Governmental Accounting Scholarship, which grants $3,500 to eligible accounting students and is open to both US and Canadian citizens.

If you are a minority student, keep an eye out for accounting scholarships specifically tailored for your minority group. The NABA National Scholarship Program awards up to $6,000 to black students nationwide, and the Scholarship for Minority Accounting Majors awards $3,500 to minority students attending a Washington State university.

Applying for Accounting Scholarships

Many of the available accounting scholarships require a minimum GPA, usually above a 3.0, since accounting is such a math-heavy field. Often, academic performance is a major factor along with financial need.
