Accounting student receives prestigious scholarship award

Emily Masterson, an accounting major at Mount Mercy University, recently received a scholarship award from the Iowa CPA Education Foundation. Masterson was one of only six Iowa students selected for the award.

Associate Professor of Accounting Steve Gilmour says, “Emily is a perfect example of the type of student we aspire to work with. This honor reflects well on both Emily and our accounting program.”

The Iowa CPA Education Foundation’s mission is to “support and encourage individuals to become certified public accountants and provide financial education in the state of Iowa.” Their annual scholarships are available to accounting students who have committed to taking the CPA exam in Iowa.
