The TSS Accounting Scholars program will work with college students to introduce them to career opportunities in the Accounting field.  We encourage our scholars to strive to become part of something that is a little bit bigger than themselves. It is in this manner that they will stretch themselves and grow into excellence and achievement throughout their career.

What Our scholars say

“The internship program has made me realize my true potential as an undocumented student of color in the finance world. I have enjoyed learning sales negotiation strategies and conducting investment research reports.”

Luis Cortes-Reyes

“What I appreciate the most out of The Street Smarts is that we not only accept but we strive for diversity of thought which thanks to that, we have plenty of perspectives for any given situation.”

Sophia Bayatmakoo Coppel

“You have to understand accounting and you have to understand the nuances of accounting. It’s the language of business and it’s an imperfect language, but unless you are willing to put in the effort to learn accounting – how to read and interpret financial statements – you really shouldn’t select stocks yourself.”
