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."
