The Ritchie-Jennings Memorial Scholarship application period is now open and students have been encouraged to contact local ACFE Chapters in order to become acquainted with a CFE. The ACFE Foundation is asking for your help assisting students who wish to pursue a career in a fraud examination or similar path by providing letters of recommendation. General information about the Ritchie-Jennings Memorial Scholarship Information or an explanation of how students can obtain a letter can be placed on your chapter website.
In addition to participating in the Scholarship Fundraising Challenge, encouraging students in your region to apply for the scholarship itself and developing a relationship with a student through the application process are great ways for your chapter to support the next generation of anti-fraud professionals.
Students can also visit ACFE.com/Scholarship for eligibility criteria and to complete the online application. The deadline date for completed applications is February 5, 2015. Scholarships are awarded in the amounts of (U.S. dollars) $10,000, $5,000, $2,500, and $1,000. We appreciate you sharing this opportunity and helping students achieve their educational goals.
