The Nebraska CPA - November 2018

November 2018 Society Foundation Awards Scholarships $127,500 Presented to 72 Nebraska College Students The Foundation of the Nebraska Society of CPAs has once again set a new record for both the dollars awarded and the number of students receiving scholarships for the 2018-2019 school year. At its May 2018 Board of Trustees’ meeting, the Foundation awarded an all-time record of $127,500 in scholarships to accounting students (up from $125,000 in 2017 and $118,500 in 2016) at 14 Nebraska colleges and universities. The scholarships ranged from $1,500 to $3,500 each. A total of 72 scholarships were awarded with 16 of the scholarships awarded to 150-hour students who are completing their college education requirement before sitting for the CPA exam. One of the 150-hour scholarships is named for and in part funded each year by the Aureus Group of Lincoln. Three of the scholarships are named for the Society’s 2018 Award Recipients, one is presented on behalf of the Foundation Board, one is awarded in honor of the Society’s first executive director Arnold Magnuson, and one is given from the Al Brune Scholarship fund. The mission of the Foundation, led by Don Kluthe of Omaha, is to “support excellence in the Certified Public Accounting profession” by providing scholarships to accounting students of Nebraska colleges and universities. You will find the list of 2018-2019 scholarship winners on page 7 of this newsletter.
