A Year-Long Look At The Profession
The INCPAS Scholars program is a career awareness and mentoring program for minority high school students. Through a wide array of monthly career and college-prep events, Indiana students gain important skills for their future and establish long-lasting relationships with respected CPAs in Indiana. Currently, Scholars programs are in Central Indiana and South Bend.
Students participate in monthly events such as visits to CPA firms, businesses employing CPAs and Indiana colleges. Additionally, students meet with personal shoppers to obtain a professional outfit and participate in an etiquette dinner.
In seven years, 136 students have graduated the program and 31 are currently appointed as Scholars. We have an active pipeline of highly engaged accounting/business majors. Of the program grads who are in college 81% are majoring in accounting/business, with 96% staying in Indiana for college.
By coordinating the passion and individual goals from partnering firms, companies and schools, the Society was able to channel this energy into a truly impactful program that is producing CPA Candidates (and soon CPAs). Apply to participate in this ground-breaking program.
The Scholars program would not be possible without supporters. If you'd like to contribute, you can do so online today!
