Stetson Student Earns Scholarship to Accounting Leadership Workshop
Stetson University School of Business Administration student Mikhaella P. Lloren recently earned a full scholarship to attend the American Institute of CPAs (AICPA) Accounting Scholars Leadership Workshop (ASLW) in Houston, Texas. The annual invitational program is for minority accounting students who plan to pursue the CPA designation.
“We are extremely proud of Mikhaella who routinely demonstrates Stetson values and who is now recognized for her leadership potential at a national level,” explained Valrie Chambers, Ph.D., associate professor of taxation and accounting at Stetson University. “The AICPA is a world-class organization and the invitation to receive their training in a select group is indeed an honor.”
Last year nearly 100 students attended the event, which is designed to enhance students’ understanding of the career paths within the accounting profession and to prepare them for the steps that follow graduation.
The scholarship was presented by the AICPA Foundation and covered the cost of Lloren’s transportation, hotel accommodations, training experience and meals for the workshop May 17-20.
To be considered for the scholarship, Lloren had to be an accounting major, have a minimum 3.0 GPA, be an ethnic minority, and be actively involved in campus and community activities.
