NEW YORK (May 5, 2016) – Accounting and advisory firm Baker Tilly Virchow Krause, LLP (Baker Tilly) was recently recognized for its ongoing commitment to Hofstra University at the institution’s annual donor appreciation reception on April 6. Since 1999, Baker Tilly has awarded Baker Tilly/William J. Holtz and Paul Rubenstein Memorial Endowed Scholarships to two Hofstra accounting students every academic year.
“This scholarship fund was established in memory of Holtz Rubenstein Reminick's founding partners,” Baker Tilly New York Regional Managing Partner Barry Garfield said. “Baker Tilly is pleased to continue our longstanding support of Hofstra University and to invest in the future of the accounting industry by providing local students with financial assistance to help them achieve their educational goals.”
Holtz Rubenstein Reminick established the scholarship prior to its 2013 merger with Baker Tilly. The award goes to full-time students beginning their junior year at Hofstra. Recipients must be accounting majors who are residents of Long Island and who have demonstrated civic leadership.
