Frank Frago Community Service Award Scholarship (2013)
I felt special to receive the
Frank Frago scholarship because
I was told about how much Mr.
Frago cared about giving back to
the community. I have always
believed that giving back to the
community is a vital part of the
college experience; it teaches
you skills that no class can.
The Educational Trust Fund (ETF) exists to help tomor-
row's CPAs today by providing financial support directly to
students, accounting departments, and accounting clubs
at Connecticut colleges and universities recognized by the
Connecticut State Board of Accountancy.
Who provides this financial support?
The support of the ETF comes from the annual ETF golf tour-
nament and the many members of the CTCPA who make in-
dividual contributions in the spirit of promoting the future of
the certified public accounting profession. These donations
help attract and encourage new talent the profession needs
to continue to grow and thrive.
Who determines the scholarship recipients?
The ETF is administered by trustees, serving three-year terms,
who determine scholarships and amounts to be awarded,
review applications and select scholarship winners, and pres-
ent awards at annual events including the Fall Awards Dinner,
Community College Accounting Scholarship Luncheon, and
individual college and university award ceremonies.
