Grow the Enrolled Agent Profession

Posted on December 2, 2015 · Posted in CSEA Society News, Latest Updates

The CSEA Education Foundation is a nonprofit 501(c)3 public benefit corporation that supports and encourages current and future Enrolled Agents through education scholarships. Established in 1984 by outgoing President Nancy Nesbitt, EA, CSEA’s Scholarship Fund has awarded tens of thousands of dollars to worthy students to assist them with their education, particularly to promote the Enrolled Agent profession as a career choice.

Scholarship Awards are funded through the generosity of the CSEA Members, and by sponsors, donors and contributors to any of the Society’s fundraising events. Contributions to the CSEA Education Foundation are deductible for tax purposes.

There are two types of scholarships available:

  1. California residents not currently or previously licensed as EAs are eligible to apply for a scholarship for tuition, including registration fees and books, for courses in the field of taxation, finance, or accounting, particularly courses specifically designed for Special Enrollment Examination (SEE) preparation.
  2. Current California EAs who wish to broaden their knowledge in the field of taxation are eligible to apply for a scholarship for appropriate courses. Scholarships are not awarded for courses necessary to maintain continuing professional education hour requirements, but are specifically intended for courses that expand the fields of knowledge and expertise. Examples of appropriate courses include CSTAR, Tax Court and NTPI.

The next scholarship application deadline is December 31, 2015. Click here to learn more about the CSEA Education Foundation, download a scholarship application or make a donation.
