The Richmond Chapter of the American Society of Women Accountants considers applications each year for two categories of scholarships. One scholarship fund, the Alma Ottoman Scholarship, was named after our chapter’s first president and considers the needs of all types of students studying accounting. The second fund, the Nancy Anne Weinstein Scholarship, was funded by one of our current and very generous chapter members. This fund looks at the needs of a non-traditional student, an individual who has returned to school to study accounting.
Both scholarships have the same application form and basic requirements. While an applicant need not be a current member of ASWA, the applicant:
1. Shall be a part-time or full-time student pursuing a bachelor’s or master’s degree in accounting or an equivalent designated post-baccalaureate certificate of accounting.
2. Shall have completed a minimum of 60 semester hours or 90 quarter hours with a declared major in accounting.
3. Shall be attending an accredited college, or university or professional school of accounting.
4. Shall include an application, current transcript, and 2 letters of recommendation.
The chapter will consider the following criteria when making their selections:
- Career Goals
- Communication Skills
- Financial Needs and Circumstances
- Grade Point Average
- Personal Circumstances
Awarded in Spring and Fall of each year. For more information contact local chapter through link.
