Reynolds Bone & Griesbeck Participates in PCPS Scholarship Program
The AICPA is now accepting applications for the 2020 Private Companies Practice Section (PCPS) George Willie Ethnically Diverse Student Scholarship and Internship program.
Five minority accounting students pursuing CPA licensure will be awarded both internships and scholarships worth up to $20,000 to aid them with their final year of tuition. Reynolds Bone & Griesbeck PLC of Memphis is one of five PCPS member firms selected nationally to cosponsor an internship during the 2021 tax season.
“Interning for a firm is one of the best ways to experience what it means to be a CPA,” said Carl Peterson, AICPA’s vice president of small firm interests. “This program gives students financial backing to help them complete their accounting education and real-world experience that will better prepare them for a career as a CPA.”
The program honors the legacy of George Willie, former chair of AICPA’s PCPS Executive Committee and the AICPA Minority Initiatives Committee. The other PCPS member firms that will sponsor internships are Aronson LLC of Rockville, Maryland; Boyum Barenscheer of Bloomington, Minnesota; OnTarget CPA of Indianapolis; and Sensiba San Filippo of Pleasanton, California.
The application period is open now through April 15, 2020. For more information visit ThisWaytoCPA's website.
