RSM US LLP (“RSM”) – the nation’s leading provider of audit, tax and consulting services focused on the middle market –  is pleased to announce it has selected 10 students to receive scholarships toward their 2020/2021 tuition through the RSM US Foundation's national scholarship program: Power Your Education. Additionally, each student earned an invitation to RSM’s competitive Pathways Summer Leadership Program.

The winners were selected based on a number of core criteria, including: a short answer describing something that makes them unique; pursuit of a bachelor’s degree in business or technology; and a 30-second video response to the question: “What does RSM’s brand promise – the Power of Being Understood – mean to you?” Judges assessed the essays based on creativity, quality of writing and reflection of the applicant’s individuality, and the degree to which each video submission reflected RSM’s core values of respect, integrity, teamwork, excellence and stewardship.

Each student will receive a $10,000 scholarship toward their business or technology related undergraduate degree (for a total of $100,000 in scholarships). This year’s scholarship winners are:
