National group of CPAs awards scholarship to UOG student
Katrina Mae Tahimik, a senior accounting major at the University of Guam’s School of Business and Public Administration, has been awarded a scholarship from the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA).
Tahimik received the $5,000 scholarship – funded by the AICPA Foundation – under a program to support full-time minority students pursuing an undergraduate or graduate degree in accounting or an accounting-related major.
“The AICPA scholarship definitely eases the financial burden for me as a working student. More importantly, receiving the AICPA scholarship reminded me why we should not give up,” said Katrina Tahimik, who expressed gratitude to her parents, Israel and Eleanor Tahimik, for her achievement.
While juggling college classes, Katrina Tahimik works as a part-time accounting assistant for a group of franchise restaurant businesses in Guam.
