Having received the approval of the NASBA Board of Directors at its October 2021 meeting, the NASBA Education Committee will award an Accounting Education Research Grant in the amount of $4,500 to the research team of Tristan B. Johnson (University of South Alabama) and D. Shawn Mauldin (Mississippi State University). Their project titled, “Will CPA Evolution Increase the Attractiveness of the Accounting Profession to Students with Higher Analytical and Technological Skills?”is focused on the CPA Pipeline, which remains a relevant and timely topic of discussion among NASBA and Boards of Accountancy.

This grant marks the second award presented to a research team in 2021. In August, the Education Committee awarded a research grant to a team from Clark Atlanta University for their project titled, “Do the program curriculum, faculty characteristics, and support association at Minority Serving Institutions contribute to achieving CPA certification?”

Since 2011, the program has awarded over $174,500 in support of academic research nationwide. The 2022 Call for Proposals is open now through 11:59 p.m. CT on March 11, 2022. Post-doctoral researchers and professors seeking funding are encouraged to submit grant proposals for consideration prior to the deadline. Grant recipients will be announced in summer 2022.
