Gainesville, Fla. (October 27, 2023) – CPAmerica is continuing its support of helping professionals become licensed CPAs through its ongoing partnership with Surgent. Two scholarships for Surgent’s CPA Review Course were awarded to Ryan Asch, Staff Accountant, and Jake Campbell, Staff Accountant, both at member firm Harper & Whitfield.

This partnership began in 2019 and has since awarded more than 10 scholarships to CPAmerica members.

“To me, this was a very rewarding feeling, knowing I was able to play a big role in a successful experience with a client,” said Asch. “By obtaining my CPA license, I will be able to improve experiences such as these with our clients.”

“It is possible to have a career in the public accounting field without the credential, but I want to be truly successful,” said Campbell. “To advance in my career as an accountant, my goal is to become a CPA. It will take some hard work and sacrifice, but I know it will be a rewarding process.”

CPAmerica and Surgent will reopen applications for scholarships in July 2024. Current CPAmerica members who are planning to sit for the CPA exam are encouraged to apply. More information on Surgent’s offerings for CPAmerica members can be found here:
