The Fourlane Scholarship Fund provides financial support to individuals seeking a career in the accounting software implementation field.
It is our passion to help drive education and experience for individuals who are interested in entering the accounting profession, not for tax or audit, but with a focus on financial strategy and process creation, automation, and simplification to get timely and accurate data to make better business decisions.
We are committed to aiding individuals who want to enter the workforce in the capacity of Certified Management Accountants, Financial Management Accountants, Software Implementation Consultants, and Technical Accountants.
On behalf of Fourlane’s Scholarship Committee, we are excited to announce a total of $25,000 has been awarded to this year’s recipients. These five exceptional students have demonstrated outstanding merit! We are honored to be a part of their educational journey.
Congratulations to the following 2021 Fourlane Scholarship Recipients:
Morgan Schmidt – Texas State University
“I am a first-generation college student, and this journey has been a learning experience for my family and me. I am so excited to learn everything that I can about accounting and also about myself. College will give me the rigor and freedom that I have been ready for since my freshman year of high school. Throughout my last 2 years of high school, I have maintained a part-time job on top of college classes, extracurricular activities, and exceeding in the classroom. This scholarship takes a huge burden off my family and me. Student loans are no joke and this scholarship helps me immensely. This scholarship is a huge honor and I want to thank Fourlane for this opportunity.”
Kalena Wright – Georgia State University
“I have always been captivated by foreign languages and cultures. My dream is to combine this passion with my interest in math-related studies, allowing my projects to include and allow access to underrepresented communities and individuals. Receiving this scholarship will give me the ability to focus more on pursuing my educational goals and transforming this dream into a reality. I look forward to the insight and exposure that I will receive along this journey. The Fourlane Team has truly blessed me with this opportunity, and for that, I will forever be grateful.”
Eunsuh Jasmine Cho – Harvard University STEM Program
“Driven by my intellectual passions and the idea of creating technical innovations to impact and support my community, I plan on pursuing a computer science major in college and develop personal projects and apps throughout my college journey. My prospective career path stems from my growing curiosity, passion for technology, and desire to close the gender gap in the STEM workforce. I aspire to pursue machine learning research, designed specifically to bring natural language processing and text analysis into everyday AI usage. Next fall I will be attending Harvard University pursuing a dual concentration in both Computer Science and Applied Mathematics. Reaching one step closer in my career pursuit, The Fourlane Scholarship will help cut the burden of my parents with the tuition at an out-of-state, private university.” – Eunsuh Jasmine Cho
Leo Flores-Villarreal – University of Texas
“The Fourlane Scholarship Fund has granted me the privilege to fully focus on my education in business, free from worry of its cost.”
Sydney Wyatt - Eastern CT State University
“I am looking forward to applying my basic knowledge of accounting to the real world. My scholarship will help me further my education in that pursuit. I am also looking forward to furthering my knowledge about accounting and how it can be applied in different situations.”
