amandaDedicated business student, Amanda Sahloff, was recently selected as a Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (PCAOB) scholar. Sahloff will be graduating next May with a triple specialization in Accounting, Information Systems Auditing and Control, and Business Analytics.

The PCAOB Scholars Program seeks to benefit students who are likely to become auditors. The scholarship is awarded through a nomination process. Students must be selected and nominated by their institution after meeting all student eligibility criteria. Nominees must be enrolled in an undergraduate or graduate accounting program at a college in the United States and maintain an overall GPA of 3.3 or higher while demonstrating high ethical standards.

Amanda learned of this scholarship through one of her accounting professors, Brian Rohrs. Accounting Department Chair, Dr. Terence Pitre, officially nominated her.

"Amanda has distinguished herself as one of the top accounting students in the country," stated Pitre.

“Amanda Sahloff is an exceptional student and is very deserving of the PCAOB Scholarship,” exclaimed Rohrs. “This award is a testament to her hard work and academic success in accounting!”

She credits the College of Business and her professors for her success.

“This scholarship means so much to me and I couldn't be where I am today without the help of all of the faculty and resources in the College of Business,” says Sahloff. “I hope to continue to make BGSU proud throughout my future opportunities.”

“Being chosen for the PCAOB scholarship is a great achievement, and we are very proud of Amanda,” commented Ray Braun ’80, Dean of the College of Business. “I look forward to her future successes.
