The following scholarships are awarded by the Florida Institute of CPA’s (FICPA) Scholarship Foundation. When you go to the website below, you will find information on four scholarships. Three are available to UF students:
“FICPA Scholarship Foundation Scholarship” – Please note that for this scholarship, consideration will only be given to students who completed the FSOA Graduate Awards application, which was due February 1 (but we have extended the deadline to February 17). Do not apply for this scholarship on the FICPA website unless instructed to by the Fisher School. However, to be considered for the following two scholarships, you must apply on the FICPA website by the indicated deadline.
