KPMG Graduate Diploma Accounting Award

Description
The KPMG Graduate Diploma Accounting Scholarship will be awarded to students enrolled in the Graduate Diploma in Professional Accounting in York University?s School of Administrative Studies. Full-time and part-time students are eligible; recipients must be graduates of the Bachelor of Commerce degree in the Faculty of Liberal Arts & Professional Studies. Recipients will be selected based on entrance GPA. In cases where the GPA is tied or very close, financial need may be considered as an additional criterion. The scholarship is non-renewable. The KPMG Foundation acts as a catalyst in the mobilization of KPMG and its people in giving to their communities. More than providing an avenue for giving, the Foundation helps drive KPMG?s mission to be a socially-responsible and civic-minded organization and promotes a culture in which our people thrive personally and professionally.
Application Process
Students in the program who complete a Student Financial Profile will be automatically considered and their names forwarded to the Graduate Diploma Program.
