The Bahamas Institute of Chartered Accountants (BICA) has announced plans to provide an annual scholarship over the next five years to two deserving students in the accounting programme at the College of the Bahamas (COB).

The award is part of BICA’s aim to support young Bahamians in fulfilling their career choice and educational endeavours in the profession. The programme also is expected to have a mentoring and job placement component, as it brings young students in contact with industry professionals.
