Accountancy & Finance Bursaries
ICAS Foundation – Making a Difference
Bursaries of up to £10,000 payable over 4 years available
ICAS Foundation is a charity and we have bursary funding to award this year. To date we have awarded £722,000 in bursary funding. The ICAS Foundation is a body that has been established by ICAS (Institute of Chartered Accountants of Scotland) to make a significant difference to academically talented young people from disadvantaged communities by helping them take their first steps into a professional career in accountancy or finance.
As you will know, younger people from disadvantaged communities are under-represented at universities across Scotland and, in particular, on courses that lead to a life-long profession. ICAS, as one of the leading professional accountancy bodies in the world, believes that it can do more to open up access to the accountancy profession and has helped establish the Foundation to help do just that.
- We offer bursaries of up to £2,500 per academic year for students studying Accountancy or Finance degree.
- Students with parental income below £34,000 are eligible to apply.
We are looking for students who meet the criteria and are due/expect to start a university course, studying accountancy or finance this year. We would be interested in helping them. We are now accepting applications for bursary funding. The closing date for applications is 17 May 2017.
Application Forms together with guidance is available on our website www.icasfoundation.org.uk.
