Citrin Cooperman recently announced it has awarded ten exceptional students with scholarships totaling $40,000 as part of the firm’s 9th Annual High School Accounting/Business Student Grant Program, one of them being Ryan Mandell of Plainview.
Each student will receive $4,000, equally distributed over the course of four years as long as he or she is enrolled in college and meets specific requirements set forth by the firm’s Scholarship Committee. Led by Alex Serrano, co-managing partner of the Livingston, N. J. office, the committee is comprised of a representative group in each of the firm’s offices in Connecticut, New Jersey, Philadelphia, White Plains, and New York City.
“These students possess outstanding academic qualities that set them apart from a field of impressive applicants,” said Serrano. “We are excited to be able to contribute to the future of these bright students.”
“Our firm maintains a strong commitment to recognizing and supporting the academic achievements of future leaders in accounting and business,” said Joel Cooperman, managing partner of Citrin Cooperman. “Every year we are impressed with the high-caliber of students that apply for our college grant program.”
To date, Citrin Cooperman’s college grant program, which launched in 2005, has awarded $150,000 to 75 students. Students must maintain a 2.75 GPA and stay enrolled as a business or accounting major. Annual applications are accepted in January with the selection process concluding in May.
