From our friends at MSCPA:
High School “Diversity & Inclusion” Scholarship Opportunity
In May 2018, the MSCPA was thrilled to provide $1,000 scholarships to eight ACAP/C.A.M.P. diversity summer program graduates who have decided to pursue a degree in accounting. In addition to their scholarship, each student receives an introduction to the firm that sponsored them for a potential internship opportunity and is eligible to receive continued financial support towards their education in scholarships throughout their college careers.

- If your student has attended ACAP or C.A.M.P., applications are now open for them to apply for this scholarship opportunity! The deadline to apply is March 15, 2019.
“Is Accounting for Me?” High School Accounting Conference
Our “Is Accounting for Me?” fall conference will take place on November 30 at Bentley University. The event includes:
- Interactive activities;
- Panel discussions with accounting professionals and college students;
- A networking lunch with faculty, students and CPA practitioners; and
- An optional tour of the campus.
- An invitation for similar conferences scheduled for Suffolk University (Date TBD) and UMass Amherst (Date TBD) will be sent in the spring.
FREE MSCPA Membership for High School Students
Please encourage your students to take advantage of our FREE MSCPA high school membership! High school juniors and seniors interested in learning more about accounting or business will be directly informed about scholarship opportunities, conferences and workshops. If a student wants to learn more about the accounting program at a particular college, we’ll introduce them to an MSCPA student member or professor who can help.
We love being able to support your students and can’t wait to see their progress in the profession in years to come.
Early College Academy for High School Students
We launched our early college academy in September, a four-course accounting track that will allow high school students to earn up to 12 college credits through UMass Lowell. The academy is the first accounting-focused, early college initiative in Massachusetts. According to the U.S. census, it is projected that the majority of the population will be minorities by 2045. Because students in their junior and senior years are typically contemplating career choices and navigating their way through their suitable interests, the MSCPA believes that timing is key, and the end result could be a lifetime of career fulfillment for these young professionals.

Would you like an accounting professional to share their real-world experience with your students? Our goal is to raise the level of awareness of the many career possibilities that the accounting profession offers and we hope to double the number of classrooms we visit in a school year.
