The EY Scholarship is designed to help you achieve that potential from day one.

This program will offer participants financial support toward their degree as well as the opportunity to gain practical experience as an intern within the region during school breaks.
The EY Scholarship is valued at up to US$30,000 per year and is renewable for up to a maximum of five years until the recipient has completed the minimum educational requirements to qualify for a professional license. Successful applicants must be looking for career experience in a dynamic environment and enrolled full-time at an approved college or university, and working toward a bachelor’s or master’s degree in accounting, finance, computer science, actuarial science, mathematics, data analytics or other appropriate major with a strong academic record.
Applications are accepted on an annual basis from 15 January to 15 April, whereafter a selection committee will award the scholarship in late May. Unsuccessful candidates will receive notification by email.
All scholarship recipients, should they qualify, agree to pursue full-time employment with EY for a minimum period of three years after they have completed the educational requirements in their course of study.
