A word from our scholarship recipients

Laurence Chassé

Candidate for the CPA profession
“Outstanding Commitment” scholarship

Creating a better world is also a part of the CPA profession!

« Just knowing that the Foundation recognizes my involvement in less fortunate communities is extremely moving. Receiving this scholarship a few weeks before I begin preparing for the CFE encourages me to keep working toward my designation. Thank you to the donors for encouraging CPAs and future CPAs to give their time to creating a better world. »

Ph.D. scholarship

Highlight the diversified skills of the CPA designation


« As someone who was both a practitioner and was involved in CPA education prior to beginning my Ph.D., the decision to go back to school full-time was not an easy one. However, this scholarship has been a tremendous source of encouragement. Awards like this one recognize the value that CPAs bring to both the classroom and to scholarly research, and will motivate other CPAs to make the leap to academia. »
