AccountingWEB announces 2011 Accounting Student Scholarship winners

AccountingWEB is pleased to announce that three winners have been chosen as the 2011 AccountingWEB Accounting Student Scholarship winners.
 
Entrants were required to write a 500-word essay on the topic of "There's an App for That." Essays were judged in a variety of areas including creativity, innovation, quality of writing, structure, logic, and sources/research. All three essays will appear on AccountingWEB.com during the next month.
 
This year's winners are:
  • Steven W. Garner of Lock Haven, Pennsylvania, is a junior attending the Pennsylvania College of Technology and working toward a bachelor's degree in accounting. Garner plans to use his scholarship money to continue pursuing his career goal of becoming a CPA and prepare for graduate-level work.
  • Lucas J. Taylor of Corydon, Indiana, is a graduate student attending Indiana University's Kelley School of Business working towards a master's degree in accounting. Taylor chose to study accounting because of the flexibility of an accounting degree. Accountants can work in a variety of fields, Taylor explained, because every type of company needs accountants.
  • Howard G. Telson of Edison, New Jersey, is a sophomore attending the College of New Jersey. Telson expects to receive his bachelor's degree in the spring of 2014. Telson chose accounting as a career path for various reasons. He enjoys working with numbers and solving problems, he feels an accounting background will open up many career opportunities, and he also is confident that accounting is a recession-proof occupation that is always needed and is likely to continue to have a good job outlook in the future.
Each winner has been awarded a $1,000 scholarship to assist with education costs.
 
Participation in the AccountingWEB Accounting Student Scholarship program is open to United States citizens attending colleges, universities, and professional schools of accounting in the United States. Students applying for the AccountingWEB Accounting Student Scholarship must have already completed at least one semester or two trimesters of full-time college and must be declared accounting majors, effective for the fall of 2011.
 
The scholarship is a $1,000 award, payable to the college where the winners attend as full-time students who are declared accounting majors.
