2016 Accounting Scholarship Recipient


In 2005, Sol Schwartz & Associates established the Accounting Scholarship Award as a way to commemorate the firm’s 25th anniversary and to honor young talent pursuing careers in this very competitive field. The award consists of an annual scholarship of $5,000 given to an outstanding accounting student in San Antonio. Applicants are judged on academic achievement, economic need, and leadership initiative.  The Sol Schwartz  & Associates Accounting Scholarship Award is funded entirely by our shareholders and is part of our firm’s ongoing commitment to help our community and fellow citizens grow.

Sol Schwartz & Associates announced the winner of the 2016 Accounting Scholarship.  The scholarship recognizes an outstanding student for academic achievement, economic need, and leadership initiative.

“We are thrilled to award these scholarships to some of the brightest young students majoring in accounting today,” said Bill McEntire, (former) Shareholder.
