MS in Accounting Student Receives Prestigious Scholarship
University of Michigan-Dearborn student Trina Narsey has received a prestigious scholarship from the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board.
Trina Narsey, who is pursuing the Master of Science in Accounting, was nominated by the College of Business Accounting and Finance Department to receive a $10,000 merit-based scholarship from the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (PCAOB).
Narsey is an Audit Intern at Comerica Bank this summer and plans to take the CPA exam as soon as she completes her degree. “Being recognized by the PCAOB, one of the most important accounting oversight organizations in the country, is a great honor to me,” Narsey explained. “This scholarship will allow me to complete my master's degree with less financial burden, and it will enable me to focus my efforts on passing the CPA exam.”
The Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 requires that monetary penalties imposed by the PCAOB in its disciplinary proceedings be used to fund the scholarship. This is the tenth year the PCAOB has funded the award, which is intended to assist outstanding students in accredited accounting degree programs.
