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.
