Minority students compete for scholarships
Minority high school students from Ohio may apply through April 3 to participate in the nationally recognized Accounting Careers Awareness Program (ACAP-Ohio) June 21 – 26 in Columbus.
Held at The Ohio State University Fisher College of Business, this week-long, all-expense paid campus residency program encourages students to pursue a college education by introducing them to a variety of career options.
The week’s agenda includes interactive workshops, tours of local businesses, and one-on-one mentoring sessions with leading minority business professionals. Students chosen for the program also can compete for college scholarships.
ACAP-Ohio, now in its 14th year, is presented by The Ohio Society of CPAs and the Ohio chapters of the National Association of Black Accountants with funding from The Ohio CPA Foundation. The innovative program gives students a chance to explore the accounting profession and learn firsthand what opportunities await them if they choose to become a CPA and enter the business world after college.
ACAP-Ohio is a fully supervised, all-expense-paid program made possible through the support of corporate sponsorships and grants. Students interested in applying must submit an application, a 200-word essay and one letter of reference. Applications can be completed online at www.FutureCPA.com and must be submitted by April 3.
