MSCPA Scholarship Program

Each year the MSCPA’s Educational Foundation awards approximately $40,000 in scholarships to students who are majoring in accounting at Missouri universities/colleges.  Please encourage any aspiring CPAs you know to apply.

High school seniors are awarded $500, and college students earn $1,250 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.
