AGA Hawaii establishes $50,000 Scholarship at University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa Shidler College of Business.
This scholarship, formally called Association of Government Accountants of Hawai‘i Endowed Scholarship Fund, assists students pursuing an accounting or auditing career in public service and honors past and future AGA Hawai‘i Chapter Presidents, Officers, Directors, Committees, and members. The initial gift of $25,000 was matched by Shidler’s Matching Funds for a total of $50,000.
“Our AGA membership recognizes the importance of establishing a perpetual scholarship for accounting students at the Shidler College of Business,” said AGA President Spencer Lum. “By supporting the education and development of accounting students with a career preference in the public sector, we are ensuring a healthier financially managed government in the future.”
