BDO, USA LLP
There are few world-class accounting firms. Far fewer that offer a culture so rich in professional opportunity – and not just for senior professionals. At BDO, we make it a priority to provide our interns and entry-level professionals with mentorship, flexibility and learning opportunities. In short, everything needed to learn and grow as professionals.
Exceptional client service begins with exceptional people committed to exceptional endeavors. At BDO, we believe that our business, at its core, isn’t about clients won or dollars accounted for. It’s about helping people thrive. It’s about creating a better culture for our employees, in and out of the office. It’s about giving back to our communities and doing our part to preserve the environment.
BDO’s core purpose is helping people thrive every day. It is, fundamentally, why we exist as a firm, and it applies as much to our clients as it does to our employees. This is the driving factor behind BDO’s scholarship. We strive to support and grow our local students of today to become the accounting professionals and business leaders of tomorrow.
The main reason BDO created this scholarship is to lend financial support to accounting students and the University of Alaska system. BDO hires many great accounting students from UAA and feels that it is their corporate responsibility to contribute, and it is a way to give back to the community.
We hope that the recipients of this scholarship feel the support from the business community and are motivated to achieve their professional goals. BDO wants to highlight the importance of obtaining an accounting degree and to be a good resource for students to start having the conversation about their professional goals and aspirations.
