The Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW) is offering a scholarship to a student for the academic year 2018-2019 at the University of Cyprus.
The scholarship is part of the ICAEW Foundation’s ‘Changing Futures’ scholarship programme and was announced during a meeting of ICAEW vice president Fiona Wilkinson with professor Constantinos Christofides, rector of the University of Cyprus. The programme has successfully supported talented students experiencing financial difficulties at UK universities.
“The ICAEW scholarship programme is about creating opportunities that will change the lives of talented and aspiring students in order to enable them to make the most of their abilities. I am glad that the foundation chose the University of Cyprus to offer its first scholarship in Europe,” Fiona Wilkinson said.
“This scholarship will support a student each year during his/her studies, who may not otherwise be able to join the profession of finance or accounting. We believe that there should be no restrictions on attracting the best and we are happy to work with the ICAEW Foundation to achieve our goal,” Christofides commented.
