The Bottom Line

Department of Business and Professional Regulation

April 5, 2013


Dear Friends,

Here at DBPR, we recognize it is important that we do our part to engage those who make up the future of each profession. By encouraging the students who are seeking a future in one of the professions or businesses we regulate, we are helping ensure those who become licensed professionals are the best and the brightest.

Each year, through the CPA Education Minority Assistance Program, the state awards several scholarships to minority students who are studying to become certified public accountants. The program was created in 1999 to encourage students to remain in higher education for the fifth year required to obtain a CPA license and is funded by a $5 portion from each individual and firm license fee. I am happy to report that more than $1 million has been awarded to minority CPA students since the inception of the Program.

This year, applications for the scholarship must be postmarked by June 1, 2013 to be considered. For more information on the scholarship, please click here.

If you know any up-and-coming minority CPA students, please encourage them to apply for the scholarship. The future of each profession is vital to the state’s economy, and I am glad we can offer assistance to those pursuing a professional career here in Florida!

Sincerely,

Ken Lawson’s Signature
