ACFE Foundation awards scholarships in 25th year of Ritchie-Jennings Memorial Scholarship Program

The ACFE Foundation has awarded $55,000 to college and university students through the Ritchie-Jennings Memorial Scholarship Program for the 2019-2020 school year. Each recipient also will receive a one-year ACFE student membership.

The ACFE Foundation, a nonprofit entity, raises funds to support the scholarship program for the education of students worldwide who have an interest in pursuing a career in fraud examination or similar fields. Candidates must be enrolled in accounting, business administration, finance or criminal justice higher-education programs. ACFE chapters and ACFE members also help underwrite the scholarships with donations. Also, royalties from books written by ACFE founder and Chairman Dr. Joseph T. Wells, CFE, CPA, help fund the scholarships.

An independent board of directors manages the ACFE Foundation. Its members include: Vincent Walden, CFE, CPA, chairman; Charles Washington, CFE, CICA, CPP, vice chairman; Vice President and General Counsel John Warren, J.D., CFE, secretary; ACFE Controller Jeannie Kwong, CFE, CPA, treasurer; and Vice President and Chief Operating Officer Jeanette LeVie, CFE, assistant treasurer.

The ACFE Scholarship Committee reviews scholarship applications and recommends recipients to the ACFE Foundation Board of Directors.
