Welcome to the Seattle Chapter NABA Annual Scholarship & Awards Banquet page. Information on applying for scholarships and attending the banquet follows. 

As part of this mission, we host an annual scholarship banquet to recognize budding high school and college students interested in accounting, finance and business.  Our theme for the banquet, Accelerate your growth and advancement is in tandem with NABA’s national objectives for the year. NABA represents the interests of African American and minority professionals in accounting, finance, and business.

Since its inception, the National Association of Black Accountants, Inc. (NABA) Seattle Chapter has provided thousands in scholarship funds to deserving college students.  Through the generous contributions of individuals, groups, and our corporate sponsors who share in NABA’s motto “Lifting As We Climb”, we provide an opportunity to help students of color reach their full potential.
