KPMG to offer students salaried scholarship

KPMG UK is to launch a programme that will
fund student’s tuition fees and provide them with a salary while
they study.

KPMG’s programme is a response to the
controversial rise of tuition fees by the UK government and will
provide the firm an avenue to tap into some of the brightest talent
at school level.

KPMG said students who successfully complete
the programme will receive a degree and an accountancy
qualification.

While it is not unusual for audit firms to
fund tertiary scholarships and higher education, it is rare for
them to offer salaries.  

KPMG’s student scheme follows a recent pledge
that the firm will provide free or severely discounted
consultancy services to the government in an effort to
boost its share of the public sector market.

Further details of KPMG’s degree programme
will be revealed at a public launch on Thursday.
