Simpson Scholarship

Postby Moderator » Sat Sep 25, 2010 2:23 pm

The Simpson Scholarship exists to reward talented ACCA students who have already proven themselves to be of sufficient merit and distinction in ACCA examinations.

Each year, the Simpson Scholarship will fund the ACCA examination and registration fees of five students for a period of five years or until they become members – whichever happens first.

In order to be eligible for the Scholarship, applicants must meet the qualification criteria and submit a 1,000 word essay.

The 2012 closing date for receipt of scholarship applications is 4 May.

Am I eligible?

You can apply for the Simpson Scholarship if you meet the following criteria.

* You are registered as an ACCA student, and
* You have paid your fees for the year ahead, and
* You have no other fees outstanding, and
* You have completed and achieved an average of 80% or more in the Knowledge module (Papers F1–F3) of the Fundamentals level of the ACCA Qualification - at your first attempt, or
* If you have exemptions from the Knowledge module (Papers F1–F3) of the Fundamentals level, then you must have achieved 66% or more in at least two ACCA Qualification papers in the Fundamentals Skills module - at your first attempt, and
* You have completed the 2011 annual PER return.

How do I apply?

If you meet the eligibility criteria for the Scholarship then the next step is to submit your application to ACCA.

You, the applicant, must write an essay entitled:

'How the award of a Scholarship will help me to realise my full potential'.

Your application must be accompanied by a Scholarship submission form including two references. Full criteria for the essay and Scholarship Submission form can be found in the sections below.

Essay check list
Your essay must:

* be typed in MS word or other similar word processing package
* be a maximum of 1,000 words
* be in 12-point sized, black font
* be double line-spaced
* have a 1-inch (2.5cm) margin at each side
* be A4 size
* include your student registration number, date and page number at the top of each page
* be in English
* be clear, concise and relevant to the title above.

If using tables and figures, six figures count as one word.

Handwritten submissions will not be accepted.

Submission form
You must complete and submit the Scholarship submission form with your essay. This form can be found in the Related documents section of this page.

You will need to include the names and contact details of two referees.

Ideally, one of these should be from a current or past employer or a tutor/teacher. If this is not possible, then your referee should be someone who knows you well. This should not be a family member.

Your referees will be asked to confirm your commitment to becoming an ACCA member.

About the scholarship

Miss Muriel Simpson FCCA died on 22 December 1977 and, in her Will, left her residuary estate to ACCA to fund a Scholarship to be called the 'Simpson Scholarship'.

Miss Simpson's wishes were that the Scholarship Fund be used to fund the further education of ACCA students who have already proven themselves to be of sufficient merit and distinction in ACCA examinations.
