As in prior years, the Channel Counties Chapter of the California Society of Certified Public Accountants (CalCPA) will be awarding scholarships to deserving students. The Chapter’s purpose in awarding the scholarships is to recognize accounting students and faculty and introduce them to the Channel Counties Chapter and CalCPA.
We anticipate that the scholarship award amounts will vary between $500 and $2,000 this year.
Applicants may access the application form at 2013 Channel Counties Chapter Scholarship Application.
Students eligible for the Channel Counties Chapter scholarship are those who are planning to become a CPA and are currently enrolled in (1) an accounting program at a four-year university or college in Ventura or Santa Barbara County; or (2) a community college in Ventura or Santa Barbara County and transferring to a four-year university or college; or (3) an extension curriculum in Ventura or Santa Barbara County with 20 units completed and enrolled in the certificate of accounting program. In addition, students must possess a GPA of 3.0 or above in all college level accounting courses and a 3.0 GPA in all college level course work completed in the 2012-13 academic year.
Completed applications should be e-mailed, mailed or faxed by October 25, 2013.
We will present the scholarships at our dinner meeting on Thursday, November 14, 2013 at the Santa Barbara Yacht Club in Santa Barbara.
