ICAEW launches fund for disadvantaged students

Institutes sets fundraising target at £10m.

A fund aimed at supporting bursaries for disadvantaged individuals who might
not otherwise have the chance to become accountants as well as prizes for
academic excellence and outstanding contributions to society, has been set up by
the ICAEW.

The fund, known as the
ICAEW Foundation was
launched at the institute’s annual lunch this week, and was ‘created out of the
desire to promote and reward excellence in accountancy education and research’.

The foundation has set an initial endowment fundraising target of £10m.

Institute president
Richard Dyson
said: ‘The foundation offers members, other prospective
benefactors, grant-making trusts and firms an opportunity to make a contribution
of lasting benefit to help shape the future of the profession.’
