NDSU senior accounting major Ashley Cheuk has been named a PCAOB Scholar for the 2020-2021 academic year by the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board.
A total of 234 students from U.S. colleges and universities were selected to receive a $10,000 scholarship for the upcoming academic year.
"Our PCAOB scholars represent the future leaders of the accounting and auditing profession,” said board chair William D. Duhnke. “We congratulate them for their academic dedication and achievements, and we wish them the best as they complete their education and begin their careers in the profession.”
The scholars program is for outstanding students who are likely to become accountants and auditors. Participating educational institutions select nominees from students enrolled in their accounting degree programs.
The Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 requires that monetary penalties imposed by the PCAOB in its disciplinary proceedings be used to fund a merit scholarship program for students in accredited accounting degree programs.
