ACAP application deadline extended to May 15

Hello Friends of ACAP, 

I hope my note finds you doing well.  I am writing you in hopes that you can help the Accounting Career Awareness Program (ACAP) reach deserving minority students that might be interested in participating in theACAP Summer Residency Week Program July 14 – 19, 2013.   We are extending the ACAP Application due date to May 15, 2013 to provide additional students the opportunity to apply for the program.

As many of you know, the ACAP is an innovative career development program designed specifically for minority students entering their sophomore, junior and senior year in high school in August or September 2013.  The program’s primary objective is to increase the number of underrepresented students of color that attend college and major in accounting, finance or business.  The 2013 ACAP summer residency week will be held at the University of California at Berkeley from July 14 – 19, 2013.  The summer residency program will include supervised field trips to Google, Facebook and the Big Four Accounting Firms in San Francisco as well as team building, lectures and our first annual business case study.  Best of all, the program is FREE.

As Chairman of the San Francisco Bay Area ACAP, I would like expand the awareness of the program and increase the pool of applicants for consideration of this life changing experience.

Please also contact me if you have any questions.
