The Association of International Accountants (AIA) has announced that four students from the Commonwealth have been awarded 2023 AIA Scholarships, funded by The AIA Educational & Benevolent Trust.

The scholarships programme aims to support students with strong career aspirations in accountancy or audit to obtain the AIA professional qualification with full financial assistance. The scholarship programme represents one of the steps AIA is taking to develop financial education and provide students with a real chance to fulfil their potential, by utilising the Trust Fund available.

The AIA Scholarships successful applicants; Bahlakoana Ramashamole from Lesotho,
Bertrand Benjamin Etouka Magnack from Cameroon, John Idowu Odumeso-Jimoh from Nigeria, and Kule Geofrey from Uganda, showed the passion, drive and willingness to learn in order to develop their future career and make a difference within the accountancy profession.

Commenting on the opportunity, Etouka said: “As a developing country, Cameroon, does not have access to high quality education and I face difficulties in funding my studies. I have always dreamt of holding a professional accounting qualification and an AIA Commonwealth Scholarship will help me realise my goals.

“I am very grateful to AIA for this opportunity and look forward to the high quality training I will receive, it’s just amazing.”
