Milwaukee FEI, in conjunction with area educational institutions, recognizes two top student achievers from selected area colleges. Two scholarships in the amount of $2,000 are awarded to outstanding students selected for this distinguished achievement.To be considered for these awards, Berglind and Zach were required to have a cumulative grade point average of 3.00 and at least a 3.50 on a 4.00 scale in business courses directly related to their major. Selection criteria, including the quality of the essay submitted, academic merit, demonstrated leadership, and involvement in civic, religious, academic and/or other career related activities, emphasize their potential for career success in corporate financial management in addition to academic and personal achievement.
