Qualified Students can apply for the free Accounting Scholars Leadership Workshop through March 15

The American Institute of CPAs encourages qualified students to apply for the AICPA’s Accounting Scholars Leadership Workshop (ASLW). The all-expense paid workshop, now in its 23rd year, is an annual invitational program for minority college accounting students who plan to pursue the CPA designation. ASLW aims to strengthen attendees’ professional skills and increase their understanding of the career possibilities earning the CPA credential affords. The application deadline is March 15.

This year’s program will be held at the Hyatt Regency Houston Galleria in Houston, Texas from Wednesday, May 17 – Friday, May 19.

“A key aspect of AICPA’s commitment to diversity includes helping minority accounting students deepen their knowledge of the profession and the importance of earning their CPA license,” said Kim Drumgo, AICPA director of diversity and inclusion and vice chair of AICPA’s National Commission on Diversity and Inclusion. “Attending ASLW is a critical turning point for many of the participants.  At the conclusion of the program, students are armed with renewed confidence and a network of peers and CPAs who understand what it takes to pass the CPA Exam.”

During the three-day event, students interact with accomplished CPA professionals and learn about the career opportunities in accounting and the value of networking. They’ll also get a sense of what life as a CPA is all about and some of the issues facing the profession. The 100 attendees who are selected will participate in learning sessions and panel discussions on topics that will develop their leadership skills and prepare them to take and pass the CPA exam.

ASLW is an all-expenses paid event, with the AICPA Foundation covering the cost of attendees’ transportation to/from the workshop location, hotel accommodations, training experience, and meals.

Students must submit a 500 word essay, two letters of recommendation (at least one must be either a faculty member or a licensed CPA), their unofficial transcript and a motivational quote.

ASLW is open to ethnic minorities (i.e., Black or African American; Hispanic or Latino; Native American; or Asian, etc.) who are U.S. citizens or Permanent Residents (green card holder). Eligible applicants must be a sophomore, junior, senior, 5th year, or graduate student for the 2016-17 academic year who have declared as an accounting, finance or tax major who intend to pursue the CPA credential. Qualified applicants must be Student Affiliate Members of the AICPA who have maintained at least a 3.0 GPA and are actively involved in campus and community activities.

The Accounting Scholars Leadership Workshop is one of a number of AICPA initiatives designed to promote increased diversity and a more inclusive environment in the accounting profession. More information about these efforts, as well as tools and resources for firms and CPAs, is available on the AICPA website.
