BKR International is delighted to announce another scholarship award for 2016. Elisavet Georgiou from Cyprus, has been recognised for her perseverance in her academic achievements and dedication to her studies by being awarded $3,000 to assist with continued ACCA studies to help her achieve a professional qualification.

Elisavet received the award from BKR EMEA Board Member and Chair of BKR International’s Tax Committee, Angelos Theodorou, in a ceremony held at BKR Member firm Euroglobal SEE Audit Ltd.’s Cyprus office earlier today. When receiving the award, Elisavet highlighted how the fund would enable her to achieve a professional qualification and give her and her family some relief from the financial strains of further education.

The BKR scholarship scheme was set up to recognise the academic and career achievements of young accountants. Many bright students face challenges, both academic and financial, in attaining a professional accounting qualification. BKR hopes that the scholarship will alleviate some of these challenges for the students it supports. Awards are made annually, throughout the year, in each of BKR’s three regions – Europe, Middle East & Africa, the Americas and Asia Pacific.Tim Morris, Executive Director of BKR International’s EMEA region, comments “BKR International understands the pressures that young people across the globe face when starting their careers. The BKR scholarship scheme allows us to recognise the achievements and hard work done by those aiming for a career in accountancy profession.  By providing young people with this support it allows them to concentrate on gaining their qualifications. In this uncertain world this has got to be good for both individuals and for the BKR international member firms to look to the future of the profession. BKR International hopes the Scholarship scheme makes a difference.”
