The Scholarship

The Luther Speight Scholarship is a testament to the commitment and vision of its founder, Luther Speight, to foster educational growth and provide opportunities for aspiring students. As the founder and managing partner of Luther Speight & Company CPAs, Luther has always been at the forefront of financial excellence and community service. With offices spanning Louisiana, Tennessee, and Georgia, his firm stands as a beacon of financial expertise and dedication.

Understanding the challenges and financial burdens that many students face in their pursuit of higher education, Luther established the Luther Speight Scholarship. This initiative aims to support USA-based students enrolled at any US university by awarding a one-time grant of $1000. The scholarship is designed to ease the financial strain of academic expenses and inspire students to achieve their educational aspirations without hindrance.

Luther’s educational journey, which began with a BS in Accounting from Clark Atlanta University, has always been a source of inspiration for him. Recognizing the transformative power of education and the doors it can open, he felt compelled to give back to the community in a meaningful way. The Luther Speight Scholarship is a reflection of this sentiment, aiming to empower students and provide them with the resources they need to succeed.

Beyond the financial support, the scholarship also represents Luther’s belief in the potential of every student and his desire to be a part of their academic journey. His contributions to the accounting realm, his active involvement with esteemed organizations, and now the establishment of this scholarship, all underscore his unwavering commitment to community growth and the upliftment of future generations.

At the heart of the Luther Speight Scholarship is a mission to make higher education more accessible and to champion the dreams of students across the country. It stands as a beacon of hope, opportunity, and support, ensuring that financial constraints do not hinder the path to academic success.
