New Scholarship Program for Inspirational Students


NEW SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM FOR INSPIRATIONAL STUDENTS

T he AICPA will fund three prizes of $5,000 each for the Medal of Inspiration program for Beta Alpha Psi for the year 2007–2008.

Under the program, members of the accounting, finance and information systems honors society will nominate themselves or be nominated by another current Beta Alpha Psi student. Nominees must write an essay describing their experience overcoming extreme hardship or making an impact on someone else’s life.

Three students with the most inspirational stories will receive cash scholarships and medals, which are expected to be presented in August 2008.

The goal of the program is that the sharing of such stories will inspire other students to find “greatness” in themselves, according to Stephanie Bryant, president of Beta Alpha Psi, who conceived the program.
