The Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (PCAOB), a nonprofit corporation that oversees auditors of issuers and broker-dealers, has awarded academic scholarships to undergraduate and graduate accounting students since 2011.
As recently announced, Cade Robson, an accounting student at Eastern Illinois University, was named a PCAOB Scholar for the 2021-2022 academic year.
The scholar program’s goals are (1) to benefit outstanding students who are likely to become auditors and (2) to make a difference to eligible students who might otherwise pursue a different career path. The PCAOB encourages participating colleges and universities to give special consideration to students from populations that have been historically underrepresented in the accounting profession.
