Applicants were evaluated based on academic excellence, leadership skills, commitment to their schools and larger communities, and a demonstrated commitment to a career in accounting or professional services marketing. The marketing scholarship highlights the importance of business-to-business marketing in professional services firms, which is a unique sub-set of the broader marketing industry.


"The KPMG scholarships recognize these exemplary students for their achievements both academically and within their community," said Helen Spice, CFO at KPMG International.  "The awards also raise the profile of accounting and business-to-business marketing in their academic institutions."
