The Accenture Scholarship Program for Minorities was created to encourage minorities to pursue degrees in engineering, computer science, and a variety of programs related to information systems and decision or management sciences. 

Scholarship awards of $2,500 are awarded to outstanding students for undergraduate study. Recipients must be enrolled as full-time students in at least two semesters (fall and spring) of the current school year to receive the full award.

Currently, the application process is now open. For more information about the scholarship process and access the application, visit Scholarship America.

Please note that the scholarship application must be completed and postmarked by the deadline date of January 31, 2012 to be considered.

Selection of recipients

Scholarship America administers the Minority Scholarship Programs for Accenture, and selects the scholarship recipients. Recipients are chosen based on the information provided in their applications. Education information (grade point average, major, etc.) is weighted heavily, as is involvement in extracurricular activities. Essays are reviewed for overall content and originality. Scholarship recipients are selected based strictly on merit—financial need is not considered. This program awards scholarships directly to diverse students and is targeted towards African American, Hispanic, Asian American and Native American undergraduate students
