    Your essay should be composed in Microsoft Word and must be no fewer than 500 and no greater than 1,000 words. Essays outside of this word count will be penalized. The essay will weigh substantially in the scholarship awarding process. The reviewers (members of the accounting education subcommittee) will consider grammar, punctuation, organization, style, content, creativity, and appropriate references or citations when applicable. Because the same reviewers see both the application and essay, do not include details in your essay that can be found in your application, as to prevent reviewers from knowing the identity of the writer. Please also refrain from using the name of your professors and college/university.
