The Chapter Matching Funds Program

The Scholarship and Awards Committee of The Educational Foundation offers chapters the opportunity to award their own scholarships through the Matching Funds Program. Chapters can submit funds that will be matched by The Educational Foundation.

The combined total amount is then returned to the chapter to be used for scholarships to students and/or financial support to local college and university accounting programs. The total amount can also be entrusted to The Educational Foundation’s Scholarship and Awards Committee to award one (1) scholarship in the name of the chapter.

Chapters that did not distribute the received funds and/or did not report back to the Foundation how funds were utilized in the previous year will NOT be eligible for participation. For more information, please review the Chapter Matching Guidelines.

How can scholarship funds be used?

Please review the Chapter Matching Guidelines.

How do we apply for matching funds?

Complete instructions are provided in Chapter Procedures for Providing Scholarships and Support.

How do students apply for our scholarships?

A scholarship application template is available to for you to personalize and distribute. Please add your chapter's name, address, and deadline to the application. 

How else can my chapter aid in providing scholarships to qualified accounting students?

Please encourage each member of your chapter to contribute to the Annual Giving Campaign to support the Foundation. Member support of this program has declined over the past few years. The Foundation has committed to support this program again this year. However, without the support of our members, continuation of this program may not be possible in future years.

Together we can make great things happen!
