Established in 2008, Beta Alpha Psi and the AICPA jointly sponsor the Medal of Inspiration to encourage others to reach within and find the “greatness” in themselves.
"The Beta Alpha Psi Medal of Inspiration was created to share the stories of extraordinary students who have either persevered through personal hardships or whose actions served to tremendously impact the lives of others. The AICPA is pleased to recognize these students with a scholarship and an award at the Beta Alpha Psi annual meeting." - Yvonne Hinson, Association of International Certified Professional Accountants Sr. Director - Academic in Residence
To date, the AICPA has given over $55,000 to award recipients.
