Scholarships

Aspiring tax professionals must pass all three parts of a rigorous 3-part test (Special Enrollment Exam or SEE) before they can apply to be licensed by the IRS as Enrolled Agents. The NAEA Education Foundation provides scholarships to these experienced tax professionals in the form of comprehensive review courses, training material and reimbursement of the third-party Prometric testing fees. The Foundation strives to provide mentors to each aspiring tax professional who is awarded a scholarship to offer suggestions to help guide them through the Enrolled Agent process.
