The CPA Education Foundation (CPAEF) offers bursaries to students taking CPA preparatory courses and the CPA Professional Education Program (PEP). Students taking CPA preparatory courses can apply for a bursary if they have completed and passed at least two courses offered by the CPA Western School of Business (CPAWSB) in the preceding year. CPA PEP students can apply for a bursary once they are registered in CPAWSB Core Module 1 or the MPAcc. program at the University of Saskatchewan. These bursaries are based on financial need and open to BC students.
In addition, there are a number of named bursaries for students in CPA preparatory courses or PEP who are in financial need, require assistance to purchase computer equipment, or who are single parents (or raised by a single parent) or recent immigrants.
