Firms selected to co-sponsor scholarship and internship program focused on diversity


Anglin Reichmann Armstrong in Huntsville, Ala.; Aprio in Atlanta; Cover & Rossiter in Wilmington, Del.; Glenn Burdette in San Luis Obispo, Calif.; and Kreischer Miller in Horsham, Pa., were the firms selected to participate in the AICPA Private Companies Practice Section (PCPS) George Willie Ethnically Diverse Student Scholarship and Internship program.

Each firm will co-sponsor one student for an internship during the 2020 tax season (January—April). The AICPA will then award up to $20,000 per student to assist with tuition in his or her final academic year.

This program, open to black or African-American; Hispanic or Latino; Native American or Alaska Native; Native Hawaiian or Pacific Islander; multiethnic; or Asian-American students, was created in honor of George Willie, a former chair of the AICPA PCPS Executive Committee and the AICPA Minority Initiatives Committee. Qualified applicants must be pursuing an undergraduate or graduate degree in accounting or an accounting-related major with a GPA of at least 3.0 (on a 4.0 scale) overall and for their major and must plan to sit for the CPA Exam. A scholarship selection task force will select up to five students, based on academic achievement, leadership, and future career interests in accounting.
