Dallas CPA Society Scholarships

The Dallas CPA Society (Dallas Chapter, TSCPA; or DCPAS) promotes accounting as a career choice. An important component of this mission is to provide financial support to junior, senior and graduate accounting students at local universities who plan to become CPAs. 

In 1988 the Dallas CPA Society and Philip Vogel & Company, PC established the Dallas CPA Society Scholarship Fund in memory of the Vogel firm's founder and chairman. At the time of his death, Phil was President-elect of the Dallas CPA Society and would have served as President in 1989-90. The DCPAS Scholarship Program is an expression of our deep appreciation for the many contributions of Philip Vogel. 

Over the last 12 years, 73 outstanding students have been selected by the DCPAS Scholarship Committee to receive over $120,000 in scholarships. This program is made possible by the generous donations of hundreds of our members over the years.
