CPA Australia sponsors up to five Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander scholarships annually. The scholarships aim to help Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people to meet the educational requirements for CPA status. The scholarship entitles recipients to exemption from all CPA Program professional level segment fees and their first year of CPA Australia membership free, at Associate level.
Chartered Accountants Australia and New Zealand has proudly launched two new scholarships to help Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander accounting graduates complete the CA program and become a Chartered Accountant.
Recipients of the scholarship will be future leaders in business and accounting, contributing to both the Indigenous community of Australia and the accounting profession.
The scholarship will provide recipients with financial assistance for the educational requirements needed to qualify for the CA designation and full membership of Chartered Accountants ANZ.
Scholarships recipients will be exempt from all CA Program module fees, from CA Study Masterclass workshop fees and from annual Provisional Membership fees up to a maximum value of $10,000 per recipient.
