While enrollment in accounting programs is on the rise, the cost of
college also continues to increase. And many firms are experiencing a shortage
of well-qualified candidates to choose from within the profession when openings
occur. Now, more than ever, is the time to provide encouragement and support to
potential accounting students.
To help combat these factors, the ISCPA continues its tradition of supporting the
CPA profession by building its scholarship fund. This Fund, known as the "Idaho
Society of CPAs Scholarship Fund," benefits qualified students pursuing an
accounting degree at an Idaho school. The Fund was officially launched at the
ISCPA annual meeting May 16, 2003. Scholarships from the Fund are limited to
college juniors and seniors majoring in accounting and are awarded primarily on
the basis of an applicants sincere desire for further education or training and
individual achievement as evidenced through participation in outside interests
and activities, leadership roles and/or work experience. Grade point averages
and economic need are considered, but are not the primary determinants.
The Fund is established under the umbrella of the Idaho Community
Foundation (ICF), an experienced, proven overseer of charitable Funds.
Contributions made to the Fund are tax-deductible.
Although the ISCPA continues to support the fund through memorials
honoraria, the real support must come from our members. We need YOU! By
investing in the ISCPA Scholarship Fund, you will join a partnership committed
to building the talented work force needed to lead the CPA profession in the
