Scholarship History: Established in the 1960s, the New Jersey Society of CPAs (NJSCPA) Scholarship Fund has grown to become the largest professional scholarship program in New Jersey. When the program was launched, the NJSCPA awarded $25 bonds to high-scoring students who sat for the CPA Exam. The mission of the NJSCPA Scholarship Fund is to attract the best and the brightest of New Jersey students into the accounting profession; to encourage students from diverse fields to pursue an advanced education in accountancy; and to increase awareness about the opportunities provided by a CPA career path. Over the course of its existence, the fund has supported more than 1,400 New Jersey students totaling more than $3.1 million in awards. The fund has helped to increase the number of both minorities and women who enter the profession, and many students have been first-generation college students, the first to attend college in their families.
