THIBODAUX, La. — A Nicholls College of Business Administration student is the recipient of a competitive petroleum accounting scholarship.
Sarah Miller, an accounting and finance double major from Houma, received the $1,000 scholarship from the New Orleans chapter of the Council of Petroleum Accountants Societies, Inc. Miller was recognized during a New Orleans chapter meeting on May 16.
“This means so much for me to receive this scholarship because it helps me feel like my hard work is paying off,” Miller said. “Because I’m double-majoring, I’m going to be doing an extra semester, which means I won’t have TOPS for the last semester, so this scholarship will greatly help the reduce my financial burden.”
COPAS of New Orleans, a nonprofit oil and gas accounting organization, awards two $1,000 scholarships to local accounting students annually. Recipients must be Louisiana residents majoring in accounting with a 3.0 GPA from a school accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business. The Nicholls College of Business Administration is AACSB-accredited, a distinction held by less than 5 percent of business schools worldwide.
