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. To learn more about AICPA scholarship opportunities, visit www.aicpa.org/BecomeACPA/Scholarships/Pages/default.aspx.
