​​Be the Future of Internal Auditing​

Internal Auditor magazine, the world's leading publication covering the internal audit profession, launched a program in 2016 offering US$1,000 scholarships for undergraduate and graduate students. Candidates provided essays judged by a panel of experts, with scholarships awarded to the winners. The program concluded in December 2017.

The IIA's Academic Relations Program

For decades, The IIA has been committed to Academic Relations by providing dedicated staffing and volunteer support. As the profession evolved, so did the needs of the academic community for "internal audit-ready" graduates to enter the business arena and meet the demand for graduates with a reduced learning curve.

To help fill the pipeline with such graduates, The Internal Audit Academic Awareness Program and the Internal Auditing Education Partnership (IAEP) were created to support institutions of higher education in creating stellar learning opportunities for those interested in a career in internal auditing. ​​​​​​​​​​​​​


As a member of The IIA, you will receive access to Internal Auditor magazine, a worldwide network of professionals​, world-class training opportunities, increased knowledge, professional guidance, leadership development, and more. If you reside outside North America and the Caribbean, please contact your local Institute for student and educator membership rates.​
