Applications for the 2020 scholarship will launch in Fall 2019.
At PwC, we believe attracting, retaining and developing talented, diverse professionals—including individuals with disabilities—is a business imperative to spur innovation, drive growth and sustain competitive advantage in the marketplace. That's why PwC is proud to partner with Lime Connect to launch the PwC Lime Scholarship for undergraduate students with disabilities who have demonstrated a passion for accounting, technology, computer science, and related fields.
Recipients of the 2019 PwC Lime Scholarship will each receive $4,000 to continue their studies. Recipients will be selected based on the overall strength of their application materials compared to the entire applicant pool.
The 2019 application closed on Sunday, December 9th, 2018, at 11:59pm PST.

- Have, or consider themselves to have a visible or invisible disability*
- Current full-time undergraduate (freshman, sophomore or junior) enrolled at a 4-year college/university in the U.S. for the 2018-2019 academic year

* An individual with a disability is defined as someone who has, or considers themselves to have, a long-term, or recurring, issue that impacts one or more major activities that others may consider to be a daily function); this definition also includes the perception among others that a disability exists. We know that 90% of disabilities on campus are invisible, and candidates with all disabilities are encouraged to apply
