Since its inception, NABA, Inc. has provided more than $11 million in scholarship funds to deserving students preparing to enter various accounting, finance and business professions. In the past two fiscal years (FY2017 and FY2018), NABA awarded over $195,000 and the amount continues to grow annually. Through the generous contributions of individuals, groups, and organizations that share NABA's desire to break through the economic barriers students of color often experience, NABA offers an average of 50 national scholarships annually ranging from $1,000 - $5,000.
Congratulations to the 2019 Scholarship Recipients, that were honored at the NABA National Convention.
"NABA has really been the life blood a lot of times of my career, so if it wasn't for participating as well as winning the scholarship and having the opportunity to go to the student conferences and network and meet these professionals my career would not be - I wouldn't even know where I would be." Kristina Williams, former NABA Scholarship recipient.
