(CNS Local Life): EY Cayman has awarded Selena Ross its 2018 scholarship, which will be used to fund her current attendance at the University of Surrey in London as she pursues her undergraduate studies in accounting and finance and, upon graduation next year, her master’s degree.

Ross has interned previously with EY and will be doing so again this summer.

The scholarship is valued at up to US$30,000 annually for a maximum of five years until the recipient has completed the minimum educational requirement to qualify as a certified public accountant, stated a press release. It provides students who have shown academic excellence the opportunity to achieve their educational objectives and build careers in the professional services industry.

The scholarship also includes an eight-to-10-week summer internship to gain practical experience and an offer of full-time employment at EY upon successful completion of study.

“It’s an honour to award this year’s EY Cayman scholarship to Selena Ross,” said Mike Mannisto, EY partner. “Selena is a poised, confident individual, with strong academic achievements. She has previous history with EY, having interned with us, and we welcome Selena back to the EY.”

Applications are accepted annually from 1 January to 15 April.
