ACAP National Grant Program

The 2019 Grant Application Process is
NOW OPEN!

 

...plant the accounting seeds and watch the pipeline grow...


NABA is expanded the Accounting Career Awareness Programs (ACAP) by providing grants to colleges and universities to support ACAP Programs provided to high school students.  We are committed to increasing the number of high school students from underrepresented ethnic groups who complete college and become transformative leaders in the accounting and finance professions. 

to advance this goal, the
ACAP – National Grant for University Based Programs (ACAP National Grant) is now available to colleges and universities with accredited accounting and finance programs. Priority will be given to new ACAP programs as NABA is looking to expand the number of ACAPs across the country.  New ACAP programs will have the opportunity to launch their programs with more resources. 


The grant application submission
 process
opened November 1, 2018 and
closes December 17, 2018 at 11:59pm EST.
