At this celebration, more than 20 scholarships were awarded to rising Junior and Senior accounting students; multiple graduating accounting students were awarded; and the Professor of the Year and the Alumnus of the Year were also honored. Between the various scholarships, roughly $68,000 were awarded.

    The Accounting Department also announced a new endowed scholarship this year, the James F. Sepe Endowed Accounting Scholarship. This scholarship was single-handedly endowed by SCU alumnus and Accounting advisory board member Lewis Chew, CFO of Dolby Laboratories.
