Benefits of Student Membership

Regional Student Conferences

NABA's Regional Student Conferences are its largest and most diverse annual student programs. They have allowed the Association to bring together hundreds of professional and student members, academia's, and corporate representatives over the years. The goals and objectives of the Regional Student Conference generally complement those of its corporate supporters. 

While the focus of the conferences rest primarily on career development and job placement, there are many opportunities to have fun as well. At the conferences, students can interview for internships and permanent positions, in addition to attending interactive sessions on topics such as: Developing Dynamic Interviewing Skills, Dress for Success, and Transitioning from College Student to Business Professional.


National Scholarship Program

Since its inception, NABA, Inc has provided more than $8 million in scholarship funds to deserving students preparing to enter various accounting, finance and business professions. For fiscal year 2010 alone, NABA awarded over $150,000 and the amount continues to grow annually. Through the generous contributions of individuals, groups, and organizations that share NABA's desire to break through the economic barriers students of color often experience, NABA offers and average of 50 national scholarships annually ranging from $1,000 - $10,000.


NABA CPA Bound Initiative

Are You CPA Bound? 

Those of you who have obtained certification have joined an exclusive club of African-American accounting, finance and information technology professionals. To increase the membership in this club, NABA along with The Howard University School of Business Center for Accounting Education (HUSB-CAE) developed the CPA Bound Initiative with four program components:  Advocacy, CPA Examination Summit, Ambassador, and our CPA Examination Boot Camp.
