ALPFA's Annual Scholarship Program
scholarships to students, in the US or Puerto Rico, who are pursuing
undergraduate/graduate studies. The purpose of these scholarships is to encourage
those students who have demonstrated academic excellence and financial need to
continue pursuing their professional careers. Over the past 3 years, ALPFA has
awarded students over $457,000 in scholarship money.
KPMG Case Study Competition
KPMG sponsors the
ALPFA student case study competition, which brings together accounting students from
over 30 schools to solve complex accounting cases and present their findings to KPMG
and ALPFA accounting professionals at ALPFA's annual national convention. The
competition teams students with KPMG professionals for several months of case
preparation. The KPMG advisor provides their knowledge, experience, and time to
assist the students as they research potential solutions to their cases. The
experience exposes the students to the possibilities of what it may be like to work
at a Big Four firm.
