Cover & Rossiter announced it was selected by the American Institute of CPA’s to participate in the new Private Companies Practice Section George Willie Ethnically Diverse Student Scholarship and Internship program.

Each selected firm will partner with the AICPA’s PCPS to co-sponsor one student for an internship during the 2020 tax season, January through April. The AICPA will then award up to $20,000 per student to help with tuition costs during their final academic year.

“Diversity is an important value to our firm and we couldn’t be more honored to be selected to participate in this inaugural diversity internship program developed by the AICPA,” said Managing Director Marie Holliday.

This internship program honors George Willie, former chair of the AICPA’s PCPS Executive Committee and the AICPA Minority Initiatives Committee, who was a regular advocate for accounting careers and urged students to pursue CPA licensure.

In addition to Cover & Rossiter, four other firms across the country were selected to participate: Anglin Reichmann Armstrong, in Huntsville, Alabama; Aprio, in Atlanta, Georgia; Glenn Burdette, in San Luis Obispo, California; and Kreischer Miller, in Horsham, Pennsylvania.

Cover & Rossiter provides tax, audit, trust and accounting services to individuals and families, businesses, nonprofits and captive insurance companies. The firm is a two-time winner of The Marvin S. Gilman Superstars in Business Award presented by the Delaware State Chamber of Commerce.
