CPA Australia and the Australian Scholarships Foundation (ASF) offer up to five 100% scholarships annually. The purpose of the scholarship is to enable managers and financial officers of registered charitable organisations to enhance their knowledge and skills to further contribute to the management and accountability of charitable not-for-profit organisations.
The scholarship entitles recipients to an exemption from all CPA Program subject fees. The award covers course fees starting from the date awarded.
The scholarships will be awarded each January. They are effective from the date awarded and will be tenable for six years, subject to the satisfactory progress by the recipients towards the completion of the CPA Program.
The scholarship does not require the recipient to render any service to the donors.
We’re offering five 100% scholarships, which will entitle recipients to enrolment into the six CPA Program subjects, valued at approximately $7,440. The award does not cover completed subject fees prior to applying for the scholarship or Foundation subjects if required.

- provide evidence that they are currently employed as managers or financial officers at registered charitable not-for-profit organisations
