In addition, three other chapters have also funded existing or new awards (with a cumulative donation of $10,300) at these post-secondary institutions across BC:

All awards are adjudicated by the faculty of the respective institution. Recipients must demonstrate scholastic achievement, demonstrate community service or leadership, and have the intent to enter the Chartered Professional Accountant program.
Thank you to chapter members for your support of local PD programs which helped fund these awards for accounting students.
