Schiller Earns Accounting Scholarship
Dawn Schiller, a University of Wisconsin-Parkside senior, is among 39 accounting students nationwide to earn a National Society of Accountants (NSA) scholarship from the society's Scholarship Foundation. Schiller, a graduate of Tremper High School in Kenosha, will receive a $1,000 award from the Wisconsin Association of Accountants Southeast Chapter.
Together, the 39 scholarship awards for 2015 total $45,875. The NSA Foundation has provided more than $1 million since 1969 to deserving undergraduate and graduate students who are committed to pursuing a career in accounting, helping develop more qualified young accountants.
Recipients were selected on the basis of an overall outstanding academic record, demonstrated leadership and participation in school and community activities, honors, work experience, stated goals and aspirations, and financial need.
"The future of the accounting profession is critically important, and these scholarships will help ensure that we have highly qualified young people coming up through the ranks," stated NSA Scholarship Foundation President Sharon Cook.
Other accounting students from Wisconsin to receive scholarships were Jordyn Herzog of Carroll University; Katelyn Otradovec of Concordia University; and Juliana Polson of UW-Superior.
