Murray, Jonson, White & Associates, Ltd., P.C. 2017 Scholarship Fund RecipientsJun 09, 2017
MJW, its clients, and friends award $2,000 scholarships to two deserving students.
Falls Church, VA, June 2017: As a commitment to our community, the MJW Scholarship was created on the Firm’s 50th anniversary. The scholarships benefit Virginia students who are studying accounting at a Virginia institution.
MJW continues adding to the endowment and has increased the number of scholarships to two per year. To date, five scholarships have been awarded to future accountants. The scholarship is administered by the Virginia Society of CPA’s Educational Foundation. Our unique endowment process has become know as the “MJW model.” Other local CPA firms have followed suit and begun establishing scholarships of their own.
The recipients for 2017 are Linjiang Han and Nadia Purvis. Linjiang is entering her junior year at UVA and will graduate in the spring of 2019 with a Bachelor of Science in Accounting. Immediately following graduation, she will begin preparing for the CPA exam and will pursue a Masters in Accounting. Nadia is in her senior year at Longwood University and will graduate in the fall with her Bachelor of Science in Accounting. Upon graduation, she will also begin preparing for the CPA exam.
