About the NJCPA Scholarship Fund: The NJCPA Scholarship Fund attracts the best and brightest New Jersey students into the accounting profession and provides the resources needed for students from diverse fields to pursue an accounting education. Thanks to the generous support of NJCPA members and New Jersey accounting firms, over the last six decades the fund has supported more than 1,600 New Jersey students totaling more than $4 million in awards. The fund has helped to increase the number of both minorities and women who enter the profession, and many scholarship recipients have been the first to attend college in their families.
