Accounting Career Awareness Diversity Program

Program: Sunday, July 16 - Friday, July 21, 2017

The Accounting Career Diversity Awareness Program (ACADP) is a program of the School of Business at Christian Brothers University designed to increase the number of high school students from underrepresented ethnic groups that attend college and major in accounting. Through ACADP efforts, students receive educational enrichment experiences and the practical help needed for college preparation and a career in accounting. The ACADP 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 the ACADP 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.

The deadline to apply is June 21, 2017. Applications will be considered after the deadline if space is available.
