The Society Foundation is a 501-C-3 entity, which makes scholarship awards available to accounting students enrolled at eight area colleges. The Foundation originally bore the name of R.D. Koppenhaver, who was chair of the UND Accounting Department for many years, and served as secretary/treasurer of the CPA Society until 1980.

To apply for a scholarship, students should contact the chair of their accounting department.
