NABA Accounting Career Awareness Program

Program: July 12 - 17, 2015

ACAP is a program of the National Association of Black Accountants, designed to increase the number of high school students from underrepresented ethnic groups that attend college and major in accounting. Through ACAP’s efforts, students receive educational enrichment experiences and the practical help needed for college preparation and a career in accounting. ACAP revolves around a one-week summer residency program for high school students. The program introduces students to career opportunities in accounting through a carefully tailored curriculum involving local university faculty and guest lecturers from business and government. Students selected for ACAP receive a full scholarship that covers the cost of tuition, room, meals, books, supplies and transportation. Students also compete for college scholarships in a Group Case Study Competition.

Applications will be accepted through June 1, 2015.
