Newt D. Becker CPA Exam Review Course Scholarship Program
High moral character, leadership, and community commitment – qualities that embody the accounting industry and Newton D. Becker, the founder of Becker. Do they resonate with you? Since 2012, Becker has provided over $3 million in scholarships to help put future CPAs one step closer to earning licensure, as part of the Newt D. Becker Scholarship Program.
We believe students who demonstrate consistently high moral character, strong leadership qualities and a commitment to community service, the principles that were valued by Newt, deserve an advantage. So, it's only fitting that we give away CPA Exam review course scholarships to the individuals who work, lead and serve. This year, the Newt Becker scholarship program will award CPA Exam review course scholarships to 120 deserving applicants!
“The Newt Becker Scholarship meant that I could focus on studying and reaching my goal of attaining my CPA license, instead of worrying about how I was going to afford the program. Receiving the award allowed me to allot all of my time to studying instead of having to work throughout my summer of studying.”
- Collin Kuntz, CPA and 2018 recipient
