VERMILLION, S.D. -- Three University of South Dakota accounting students were awarded South Dakota Certified Public Accountant Society scholarships, making up half of the total winners for the 2016-2017 academic year.
Seth Rombough, from Miller, South Dakota, was awarded the Accounting Program Completion Scholarship. The $7,500 award is the only one given to a student each academic year who is nearing completion of the 150 hours required to be a qualified CPA exam candidate.
Nicholas Monahan, of Wayne, Nebraska, and Tanner Comp, from Sioux Falls, South Dakota, each received $1,000 Accounting Excellence Scholarships. Those are targeted at students who have participated in a variety of activities and display leadership while pursuing a degree in accounting.
“The Beacom School of Business and the accounting program at USD have long been known for offering a high-quality education at an affordable price,” said Thomas Davies, professor and chair of accounting and finance. “As a result, the institution continues to attract students who excel academically and become leaders in campus activities.”
The South Dakota CPA Society provides a variety of benefits for South Dakota accounting students through professional education opportunities, public service projects and other programs aimed to enhance the role CPAs play in the business world.
