Bullock Awarded PCAOB ScholarshipJuly 31, 2018
Abigail (Abby) Bullock, a Master of Accountancy student, has been awarded the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (PCAOB) Scholarship. Abby will be awarded $10,000 to cover eligible expenses for tuition, fees, books, supplies, and equipment while enrolled at Truman. The award is merit-based. Abby was selected based on her demonstrated interest and aptitude in accounting and auditing. Additionally, Abby’s award was based on her adherence to high ethical standards while a student.
The Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 provides that funds generated from the collection of monetary penalties imposed by the PCAOB must be used to fund a merit scholarship program for students in accredited accounting programs. Using its authority from Congress, the PCAOB established a scholarship program to provide a source of funding to encourage outstanding undergraduate and graduate students to pursue careers in auditing.
