Awards & Scholarships

Students can apply for SCU accounting scholarships sponsored by the accounting department, national accounting scholarships sponsored by business organizations, and SCU university scholarships.

Accounting Department scholarships are open to all first-year, sophomore, and junior declared Accounting and A&IS majors who meet certain GPA requirements. To be considered for these scholarships, eligible students must apply by the due date specified in the application.  The Accounting Department Scholarship application typically opens in March and closes in early April.

The Accounting Department also grants four awards for academic achievement, leadership, and service each year.  There are three senior awards (O. Robert Andersen Award for a senior Accounting major, O. Robert Andersen Award for a senior A&IS major, and the Jerry Kasner Memorial Award) and one award for a junior student (Maier Memorial Award). 

These scholarships and awards are presented to the students during our annual SCU Accounting Awards Dinner and Ceremony held during the spring quarter.

Scholarships sponsored by Santa Clara University

Santa Clara offers a variety of need-based and merit-based awards for undergraduate students. Need-based scholarships are based on financial needs and can vary up to full tuition. Merit awards are based on academic performance and are often annually renewable for four years if the student continues to meet the requirements of the scholarship.
