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."

Voice of the Editor
Which isn’t completely true. I mean, occasionally I drop by when I manage to sneak out of the nonstop frat party over at Going Concern, but I’m mostly a wallflower over there. I’m happy to say that I’ve been given express permission (or explicit orders, if you like) to wander over here to AccountingWEB more often.
Why is that, you might ask? My job is to replace the irreplaceable Gail Perry as Editor-in-Chief. What does that mean? I don’t really know! I think it’ll be fun getting a feel for things, throwing in my own thoughts here and there, and listening to the discussions you’re having about the accounting profession.
