ACAP – National Grant for University Based Programs (in partnership with the AICPA)
NABA has expanded the Accounting Career Awareness Programs (ACAP) by offering grants to colleges and universities to support ACAP Program to high school accounting programs. We are committed to increasing the likelihood that high school students from underrepresented ethnic groups will complete college and become transformative leaders in the accounting and finance professions through ACAP – National Grant for University Based Programs, working with colleges and universities. The grant application submission acceptance for 2018 closed as of January 31, 2018.
The ACAP – National Grant for University Based Programs is open 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.
NABA Professional Chapters go above and beyond working with local universities to provide resources and guidance for ACAP Programs. The ACAP – National Grant for University Based Programs offers colleges and universities, that aren't currently affiliated with a NABA professional chapter, the opportunity to launch programs.
Preference will be given to those who have strong cultures of inclusion (culture alignment), high CPA pass rates, and are AACSB or ACBSP accredited schools.
A maximum of five grants will be awarded each year.
NABA student members include college and graduate school students in more than 150 chapters (professional and student) across the country. As much as a person has friends on campus it is great to have a group of peers in the same major or related field as you. You share experiences such as finding jobs, passing classes, taking school or professional exams, and developing friends and contacts that can help you get through the transition from college to professional life. As a NABA student member you also have the opportunity to attend the annual NABA Regional Student Conferences where you will be able to network with your peers but also with professionals and leading companies in the accounting and finance fields.
