"We have always appreciated the candidates we've interviewed and hired through UIC's Internship/Co-Op program," said Danielle Winkle, Director at ORBA and board member of BKR. "Many of these students finance their own education and we want to help."
In order to be considered for the scholarship, the student needed to be an undergraduate, full-time student majoring in accounting, with a minimum 3.0 grade point average. The decision process also looked at factors such as financial need, academic achievement and work experience.
