Supporting aspiring accountants

Boyce Chartered Accountants is committed to promoting opportunities for aspiring young accountants. We have a particular interest in encouraging students who wish to have a fulfilling and rewarding career whilst remaining in regional Australia.

Our commitment is demonstrated through our support of two different programs.  

Tony Quirk Accounting Scholarship

This scholarship was created in memory of Tony Quirk, a former Boyce Director who was appointed as a Director of the firm at age 27.

Boyce, in conjunction with the University of New England (UNE) Business School (where Tony studied), developed a program to provide accounting students with a scholarship and a clearly defined career path. Two years on, the scholarship is now open to students at all universities.

The program provides students with work placements, financial support, and post-graduate career opportunities.

Successful candidates will receive:

  • Paid vacation placement opportunities during university holidays 
  • Full time employment as a graduate accountant following completion of studies
  • A $500 text-book allowance during your first year of study
  • A scholarship of $2,000 during your second and third year of study 

To be eligible for this scholarship you need to be enrolled in a program of study that is compliant with the CA and/or CPA entry requirements.

 "Being successful in gaining a scholarship will alleviate some of the financial burden that comes with being a university student. The foundation of any successful career is having clear goals and skills that are in demand.  Accounting was my goal during my higher school certificate. After my HSC I was successful in being employed as a Cadet Accountant which has been a very worthwhile experience. Whilst studying I have been able to get the practical experience in the day to day operations at Boyce Chartered Accountants."
