(CNS): EY has awarded scholarships to Amanda Alexander and Dylan Bostock following a highly competitive application and review process. Alexander is a graduate of Cayman Prep and High School and will be attending Southeastern University in Lakeland, Florida. Bostock, a graduate of Baylor School in Chattanooga, Tennessee, formerly interned at EY and has been accepted at Furman University in South Carolina.

The EY scholarship is valued up to $30,000 annually for a maximum of five years until the recipient has completed the minimum educational requirements to qualify as a certified public accountant. The goal is to provide academically talented individuals the opportunity to achieve their education goals and ultimately build careers in the professional services industry.

Dan Scott, managing partner for EY in the Bahamas, Bermuda, British Virgin Islands and Cayman Islands, said, “When we evaluated this year’s candidates, we looked for individuals who embodied the EY culture of achievement, as well as our commitment to building a better working world. Amanda and Dylan have shown an ability to balance high academic achievement and civic engagement, and we are proud to honour them as this year’s recipients.”

The scholarship programme focuses on those studying accounting or another appropriate field who have demonstrated sustained academic excellence. It includes an eight- to 10-week summer internship to gain practical accounting experience, as well an offer of full-time employment at EY upon completion of studies.
