Scholarship and Awards
The Scholarship and Awards Program is the mechanism through which the Chapter demonstrates its commitment to providing financial assistance to students preparing to enter the accounting profession. The program is also geared to honor our members and corporate supporters (partners) deserving special recognition. We partner with Corporate and institutional partners to provide scholarships for college undergraduate academic degrees, professional certifications and post-graduate academic degrees. These scholarships cover up to 100% of tuition, books and other study aids needed by recipients. Our awards program recognizes outstanding contributions to the NABA cause, "Lifting as we climb." This program seeks to recognize members and partners who have gone above and beyond to meet the objectives and goals of the chapter. We celebrate our scholarship and awards recipients in the spring of each year.
Since 1990, the Chapter has awarded over $1million to students attending colleges/universities. This total is expected to increase substantially in the coming years as designated scholarships are awarded on behalf of companies that have made a three-year commitment to participate at the Platinum level in the Corporate Partnership Program.
