AICPA Scholarships

James Kasim works as a Certified Public Accountant (CPA) in the state of California, and is part of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA). AICPA helps practicing CPAs like James Kasim establish themselves in the field through conferences and other events, and helps those who aspire to become CPAs through its scholarship programs.

AICPA scholarship programs help aspiring and current CPAs pay for school at varying stages of their careers. Some scholarships, such as the AICPA/Accountemps Student Scholarship, targets those who are currently accounting majors and plan to become CPAs, whereas others, like the AICPA John L. Carey Scholarship, help those who are transitioning from fields like liberal arts and science to the accounting field. Other scholarships focus on specific minority groups, allowing people of diverse ethnic backgrounds to join the ranks of CPAs or pursue doctoral degrees in the accounting field. The organization also partners with other groups to offer additional scholarships.
