Don’t let money problem prevent you from going to college
Have you ever been good at accounting? With these scholarships you can turn your skill into a profession.
Have you ever wanted to study accounting? Now you can. Jump onboard with a traditional or online associate degree and you’ll be able to pursue the career of your dreams.
We live in an era where you can get a degree without actually having to leave your home or quit your day job. Online school programs offer major advantages over their traditional counterparts and perhaps the most important one of all is that they let you study at your own time. You don’t have to be at 7:00 am in class across town. Nor do you have to move to a different city to take advantage of what an educational establishment has to offer.
What about the financial aspect? The good news is that on average an online associate degree is less expensive than a traditional one. Couple that with the fact that you can easily apply for a scholarship and get some much-needed financial aid to support you through your student years.
In what follows you’ll find three of the best scholarships for perspective accounting students. The first one we want to bring to your attention is the UNCF WM Wrigley Foundation Scholarship.
The foundation encourages students who will be majoring in finance, as well as engineering (chemical, mechanical, electrical or industrial), business, accounting, chemistry, economics, computer science or marketing to apply for the grant.
The UNCF or United Negro College Fund is a non-profit organization that offers financial assistance to black students. The successful candidate will be awarded a $5,000 scholarship.
You can apply if you are an US citizen and hold a minimum GPA of 2.5 on a 4.0 scale. You also have to be a college junior, college senior or college 5th-year senior. The scholarship will be awarded based on demonstrated financial need and essay quality. You can apply until October 6, 2017.
The National Society of Accountants also awards scholarships for students interested in pursuing a career in account.
Students who are currently enrolled in a degree program with an accredited two-or-four offline or online school are invited to apply. The foundation will usually offer grants that range between $500 and $2,200.
In order to apply you have to be a US or Canadian citizen and pursuing an accounting major. A cumulative 3.0 GPA or higher is also required.

Are you a lady committed to pursuing a career in accounting? Then the Educational Foundation for Women in Accounting grants are right your alley.
