Life at Deloitte

Celebrating excellence... and inspiring future accountants

Accounting Students Award (ASA)  2017

Deloitte in The Bahamas would like to invite schools to participate in the prestigious Accounting Students Award 2017.

About ASA

This event highlights the achievements of top local accounting students in their final year of high school and we hope that it further inspires them to pursue a career in accounting.

The award ceremony will recognize 12th grade students who have excelled in their academics, (especially in the area of accounting) and extracurricular activities. It also provides the opportunity for students to gain exposure to the industry, and to individuals who have built successful careers in this dynamic field. The top three students pursing a degree in accounting will receive a cash reimbursement for educational expenses incurred during the first year of college/ university.

Each school is asked to nominate their top accounting student to be considered for recognition at the ASA 2017. All nominees must meet the minimum requirements.

  • Currently in 12th grade
  • Possess a minimum GPA of 3.5
  • Have a minimum of B grade in Accounting/ Bookkeeping/ Commerce

The top three finalist are automatically qualified to enter the Deloitte & Touche Bahamas Co-op Program if they are enrolled at the University of The Bahamas or will be employed at the Firm during summers, if enrolled at a University oversees. Student must major in Accounting and maintain a GPA of 3.5 while in University.

Invitations will be sent to successful nominees, once the selection process has been completed. The ceremony will be held in early summer of 2017 and further details will be added to this page in the coming months.
