Anglin is excited to be one of 5 firms participating in the George Willie Scholarship and Internship program.  We look forward to welcoming our intern, Camara Strong, in January.  The American Institute of CPAs has announced the recipients of the inaugural George Willie Ethnically Diverse Student Scholarship and Internship Program.

The program provides a scholarship and internship to five minority accounting students who are pursuing CPA licensure. The scholarships, worth up to $20,000 each, assist students with their final academic year. An AICPA Private Company Practice Section member firm will also sponsor each student for an internship during the 2020 tax season.

The program honors George Willie, a former chair of the AICPA’s PCPS Executive Committee and the AICPA Minority Initiatives Committee. Over Willie’s 35-year career, he promoted accounting careers to students and young professionals pursuing the CPA license.  Read the full press release.
