Accounting Career Awareness Program
The Accounting Career Awareness Program, affectionately known as ACAP, is a career development program for high school students from under-represented ethnic groups aimed at exposing them to Accounting and other business professions.
ACAP offers a one-week summer residency program at UC Berkeley which introduces the students to accounting, entrepreneurship, finance, economics and management through a carefully tailored curriculum involving guest lecturers from industry and academia. Students are actively involved in the week’s activities which include classroom lectures, field trips, and mentoring from working business professionals.
All ACAP participants receive scholarships covering the total cost of tuition, books, supplies, transportation, and room and board. (In other words everything is FREE for the student/parents) The week culminates with a banquet for sponsors, participants and their parents or guardians.
The residency program this year will be held from July 17-22, 2011 on the California University of Berkeley Campus.
If you can, please forward this information to ALL who may be in need or have in interest in the Accounting Career Awareness Program. This is a wonderful experience to be taking advantage of.

Application Deadline is April 15th.
