Inaugural scholarship benefits accounting students transferring from two- to four-year schools


The Institute has awarded its inaugural Two-Year Transfer Scholarship to five students who have earned associate’s degrees in business, accounting, finance, or economics with a declared intent to major in accounting at a four-year college or university.

The awards, funded by the AICPA Foundation, include $1,000 to use toward tuition for the 2014–2015 school year.

The recipients are:

  • Lisa Dimery, University of Colorado–Denver
  • Kaitlyn Fox, University of Alabama at Birmingham
  • Gabriel Rollano, University of South Florida
  • Simon Valdez, University of Texas at San Antonio
  • Matthew Warr, University of Wyoming

These students also will become part of the AICPA Legacy Scholars program, which helps scholarship winners develop soft skills needed to maintain a successful career through service. Each AICPA Legacy Scholar is assigned a coach to provide guidance on an accounting-related service project and to advise on questions related to the profession and the work environment.
