From financial support to career speakers, CTCPA supports high school and college educators (and students, of course!).


Career speakers and presentations.

We love to come to your school or campus for career fairs, accounting club presentations, or accounting classes, with a variety of available presentations:

  • Accounting career options (from CTCPA staff or working CPAs)
  • Becoming a CPA in Connecticut
  • New and young CPA panel discussions
  • Business communications seminars including public speaking, business writing, and other client skills managers tell us new hires need to succeed.

Graduate student marketing opportunities.

Attract top-notch go-getters to your graduate program by sponsoring a new and young professionals event or advertising in the CTCPA's Guide to Connecticut CPA Employers or Connecticut CPA magazine.

  • Scholarships for high school students
