The Illinois CPA Society scholarships are funded by the CPA Endowment Fund of Illinois. The scholarships recognize accounting students and CPA candidates who demonstrate strong academic performance, leadership qualities, and financial need. 

The Illinois CPA Society Tuition and Textbook Scholarships, Herman J. Neal Accounting Scholarships, and Women's Executive Committee Scholarships all use the same application and candidates may apply for more than one of these scholarships at once. We accept applications for these scholarships from February - April 1 and the awards support the following academic year. All applicants for these scholarships will be contacted by June 1 with the decision of the selection committee.
