Becker Professional Education Introduces Newton D. Becker Scholarship Program
DOWNERS GROVE, Ill. - (BUSINESS WIRE) - Becker Professional Education, a global leader in professional education and a part of DeVry Inc. (NYSE: DV), today announced a scholarship program created in honor of the organization's founder. The Newton D. Becker Scholarship program will award more than $200,000 in financial assistance including 20 full CPA Exam Review scholarships, each valued at $3,300, and additional scholarships ranging from $800 to $1,600.
Newton Becker, who passed away earlier this year at the age of 83, founded the organization in 1957 and created an innovative approach to prepare candidates for the CPA Exam. Helping students fulfill their dreams of earning the CPA credential was important to Newton, as he himself initially struggled to pass the exam.
"We are pleased to pay tribute to Newt by offering this scholarship program," said John Roselli, president of Becker Professional Education. "The students who will be selected are a reflection of the qualities that Newt embodied - leadership, dedication and the drive for success in their careers."
