The Maryland Association of Certified Public Accountants Outstanding Achievement in Accounting (MACPA) Award is presented each year to a junior or senior accounting major who has a minimum 3.00 overall GPA, with a minimum of 3.25 GPA in accounting, and demonstrates leadership skills and involvement in campus, community, and professional activities. The MACPA is the statewide professional association serving over 10,000 CPAs. This award signifies MACPA’s commitment to, and support of, accounting education.

The Stevenson University Accounting Association Scholarships are awarded to accounting majors each spring. Applicants must be full-time accounting majors at Stevenson University with 45 credit hours completed, have a 3.00 GPA overall and a 3.00 GPA in accounting coursework, and demonstrate involvement in community service and/or extracurricular activities. After meeting the qualifications, applicants are then asked to research a scholarship question to present to a panel of judges. Scholarships are then awarded based on the recommendation of the judges. The funds for these scholarships are raised by the Accounting Association’s annual Accounting Fair.
