Resident Awarded Scholarship From the Massachusetts Society of CPAs

The Massachusetts Society of Certified Public Accountants (MassCPAs)  announced that Kimberly Tran of Revere was awarded the Women in Accounting Gold Scholarship by the MassCPAs Educational Foundation’s 2024 Scholarship Program.

Tran, a student at UMass Amherst, was one of 51 students selected to receive a scholarship. The students will be honored for their awards at MassCPAs’ annual, member-wide networking event, Connect 2024, on May 8.  

“The dedication and talent of these scholarship recipients is truly inspiring,” said Zach Donah, CAE, president and CEO of MassCPAs. “Their commitment to the accounting profession fills us with confidence about the future of the industry in Massachusetts. We’re honored to support their academic journeys and play a role in their success. We extend our sincere gratitude to this year’s donors and volunteers for helping students achieve their dreams through our scholarship program.”

Scholarships are funded 100% through donations to the MassCPAs Educational Foundation. The mission of the Foundation is to inspire and support the next generation of CPAs in Massachusetts, and since the program’s inception in 2006, the Foundation has awarded over 400 scholarships to aspiring CPAs, ranging from $2,500-$10,000 and totaling more than $1,900,000. MassCPAs scholarships are available for both undergraduate and graduate accounting students who are attending a college or university in Massachusetts or attending a college or university out-of-state with a permanent residence in Massachusetts. Scholarship funds are issued directly to the students and can be used for tuition, books, interviewing expenses or other needs.

“MassCPAs is committed to fostering a diverse and talented accounting workforce,” said Allie Orlando, director of academic and career development at MassCPAs. “These scholarships address financial barriers and create opportunities for deserving students. We are deeply grateful to our individual and firm donors who share our vision. Together, we are building a stronger future for the accounting profession in Massachusetts.”
