Become a
Partner University

FICPA Scholarship Foundation Board of Trustees, staff, volunteers and supporters take great pride in the universities selected to become partners. Partnering universities do not compete against each other for a scholarship; each university is awarded annually a set number of FICPA Scholarships that are based on program enrollment. The Foundation reserves the right to withhold awarding a scholarship to a university if the candidates are not qualified or have met the given criteria.


We are strategic as to how many and how often new universities are incorporated into the Scholarship Program due to budget constraints.


The Scholarship Committee Chair with a select group of staff and committee members review all university applicants. This decision is presented to the Executive Committee and then the Board of Trustees for final approval. The Board vote occurs in the summer and fall each year for acceptance for the next academic year.

To find the best accounting students, we must begin with selecting the right schools.


To be considered, the following must be presented to the FICPA Scholarship Foundation:


  • must be recognized by the Florida Board of Accountancy (BOA) as an accredited university under Section 473.306, Florida Statutes and provide documentation

  • provide a written request by the University President or Accounting Program Department Chair to be considered as a partnering university

  • provide a brief history of the school and the accounting program

  • provide documentation of current accounting program enrollment and cost/credit hour as well as last year's graduates for the following

    • 4th year students

    • 5th year students

    • MAcc and MST students

    • MBA students with a concentration in accounting

  • provide dedicated liaison to the FICPA Scholarship Foundation

  • agree to market the scholarship to all accounting students.
