Students from disadvantaged communities have until 31 May to apply for accountancy and finance bursaries through the ICAS Foundation.

The  ICAS Foundation charity is offering bursaries to academically-talented students from disadvantaged communities who want to study accountancy or a finance-related degree.

These bursaries will provide real benefits to students, their families, firms, business and society as a whole by widening access to the accountancy profession.

Bursaries of up to £10,000, payable over four years (three years in England), are made available to eligible students. . For guidance on eligibility visit

The ICAS Foundation scheme includes mentor support and help in securing a paid internship at the end of year  three.

Linda Jamieson,  Director of the ICAS Foundation said: "The ICAS Foundation is providing opportunities to students who have the talent but lack the financial means to realise their ambitions in studying accountancy and finance.

“The foundation, which is generously supported by ICAS members and other benefactors, is widening access to the profession. We have supported over 170 students and awarded £1.2 million in funding to date."

For further information and an application form visit the ICAS Foundation website .

The closing date for applications is  31 May  2019.
