Becker Professional Review announces national scholarship winners

Becker Professional Review, a subsidiary of DeVry Inc., announced that it has selected 50 deserving students for its Scholarships for Success program. Each of the selected winners will receive a Becker CPA Review scholarship to prepare for the CPA Exam.

Launched in January 2008, accounting professors from across the country were presented the opportunity to each nominate a well deserving student for the scholarship who demonstrates high moral character and leadership qualities, aspires to achieve significant career goals, plans to sit for the exam, will shortly meet CPA Exam requirements, and needs financial assistance to prepare.

"We are extremely pleased with the results of the Scholarships for Success program," said Thomas J. Vucinic, president of Becker Professional Review. "The number and quality of applications exceeded our expectations. We are delighted to contribute to the success of these 50 well deserving students."

"I am truly honored that I was selected as a recipient of the scholarship," said Erica Nelson, George Fox University. "The scholarship will provide me with the assistance I need to prepare effectively for the exam."

"The Scholarships for Success program afforded me the opportunity to recognize the potential of one of my students." said Dr. John Coulter, Western New England College. "The financial support provided by the scholarship will significantly aid her as she prepares to complete the CPA Exam."
