It’s an honour knowing your career inspires your children or family members to follow in your footsteps. But, as every CPA knows, the journey to becoming a Chartered Professional Accountant requires hard work and dedication to one’s education.
As the charitable arm of CPA Alberta, the CPA Education Foundation wants to help students reach their goals. Awarded annually, the Foundation’s Generations of Excellence Awards are awarded to 2 third and fourth-year post-secondary students enrolled in business or commerce in Alberta. Eligible applicants will have at least one family member who is (or was) a member in good standing of CPA Alberta or one or more of its legacy predecessors.
The deadline to apply is February 29. The CPA Education Foundation has a variety of scholarship opportunities available and successful applicants always reflect diverse and creative talents, whether their strengths lie in leadership, philanthropy, academic excellence, or a desire to pursue a CPA designation. This scholarship, along with plenty others available to high school, post-secondary and PEP students, can change a student’s life. If you know an aspiring CPA who would benefit from a scholarship, please pass along this information and encourage him or her to apply. You can help a future business leader complete his or her journey.
