The Institute of Internal Auditors (IIA) – Miami Chapter has awarded $1,000 scholarships to two School of Business accounting students. The scholarships, won by Brian Finkel and Mari Pape, are two of just four scholarships awarded each year to students pursuing degrees at colleges and universities in Miami-Dade and Broward each year.
In order to be considered, students must write an essay addressing one of the following questions:
- What do you expect to contribute to the auditing or accounting profession in the next 10 years?
- What is the biggest issue that the auditing or accounting profession faces and how should the issue be addressed?
- How do you value your education as it relates to auditing or accounting?
The scholarship winners were recognized at the IIA –Miami Chapter’s holiday party held in December in Miami.
