Michael Wilton Wins Scholarship from PCAOB

Heller College senior undergraduate student Michael Wilton has been awarded a $10,000 scholarship by the PCAOB.

Dean Asghar Sabbaghi is pleased to announce that Michael Wilton has been awarded the scholarship of $10,000 for the 2018-19 academic year from the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (PCAOB).  The PCAOB scholarship program was created to fund a merit scholarship program for students in accredited accounting degree programs, and to identify students eligible for such scholarships and award the funds through the students' educational institutions. To qualify for this scholarship, students must: (1) be enrolled in a bachelor's or master's degree program in accounting at an accredited U.S. college or university, (2) demonstrate interest and aptitude in accounting and auditing, and (3) demonstrate high ethical standards.  Michael Wilton is a senior student who has maintained a 4.0 GPA at Roosevelt and a 3.86 GPA overall.  I am very pleased to highlight that our accounting students have established such excellent record of accomplishment with this prestigious PCAOB scholarship awards during the last 10 years, and many of our students have received these $10K scholarship awards. For example, Sylwia Gregorczuk and Guadalupe Cotto had received this PCAOB scholarship award in 2017 and 2016 respectively.

Congratulations to Michael Wilton and our Accounting faculty!
