BKR International awards $1,500 scholarship to South African student

BKR International has awarded a $1,500 scholarship to Talisa Aab, a South African accountancy student, for her excellent academic achievements and dedication to her studies.

The scholarship aims at helping her complete the BCom Accounting Science degree at the University of Pretoria.

The BKR scholarship was set up to recognise the academic and career achievements of young accountants. It is awarded annually, throughout the year, in each of BKR three regions: Europe, Middle East & Africa, the Americas and Asia Pacific.

BKR International's EMEA region executive director Stephen Hamlet said: "Through the scholarship programme we are hoping to not only make a difference to the lives of the students that we recognise, but also shine a light on the pressures that young people are facing across the world, in developed and developing countries alike."

With high university costs and the uncertainty surrounding employment post qualification combined with economic instability across the world, Hamlet said many young students find it hard to complete their studies.

"We hope that in a small way, BKR's scholarship programme will give a helping hand to these young people," he concluded.
