Scholarship Overview: The AICPA John L. Carey Scholarship program provides financial assistance to liberal arts and other non-business related degree holders who are pursuing graduate studies in accounting and the CPA designation. These awards are intended to encourage students with little or no previous accounting education to consider professional accounting careers.  
 
Background: The John L. Carey Scholarship was established by members of the accounting profession to honor John Carey upon his retirement from the AICPA in 1969. During his 40-year tenure at the AICPA, he served as administrative vice president, executive director, and as editor and publisher of the Journal of Accountancy. Mr. Carey spent his entire career serving the accounting profession and made it a priority to encourage outstanding students to become CPAs.
 
Award Amount: $5,000 per recipient for one year. The award is renewable for an additional year of study provided satisfactory scholastic progress is maintained. The award will be sent directly to the school for credit to the account of the student.
 
Number of Recipients: Up to 10
 
Selection Process: A task force will review all qualified applications and select up to 10 scholarship recipients based on demonstrated outstanding academic achievement, leadership, and future career interests in accounting. All applicants will be notified by mail of the final selection by August 1.
 
Questions: Please contact the AICPA by e-mailing educat@aicpa.org or calling (919) 402-4014.
 
Eligibility Requirements:
  1. I will have obtained a liberal arts or other non-business related undergraduate degree from a regionally accredited institution in the United States prior to enrolling in my graduate accounting program.
  2. I did not earn more than 12 credits in accounting or business during my undergraduate program.
