FY 2018 WALTER FRESE
SCHOLARSHIP
The Association of Government Accountants (AGA) – Boston
Chapter is pleased to offer one (1) George E. Brady Memorial
Scholarship of $1,500 to an AGA – Boston Chapter member or
an immediate family member that is enrolled or will be enrolled
for 2018 in an institution of higher education with no limitation
as to educational major.

Background:   The late George E. Brady was a member of
AGA from 1957 until 1996.   He served as the Boston Chapter
President of AGA (1964-1965).  George graduated from
Bentley College in 1933 and went to work for United Fruit as
an accountant.   In 1941 he joined the federal government as
an accountant.  In 1954 George applied for his CPA license
where he had to demonstrate that he had the requisite two
years of public accounting experience.  At that time,
government service was not automatically accepted as public
accounting experience. George met with the licensing board
and successfully demonstrated that his 13 years of
government service had exposed him to the same experiences
encountered by public accountants.  As a result of his
tenacity, the board granted him his CPA license.  He was the
first person to have government service recognized as public
accounting experience by the licensing board.   George retired
in June 1973 as Chief of the Boston Branch Office, Contract
Audit Division, Auditor General, USAF after 31 years of
government service.

Eligibility:
 Applicant must be an AGA–Boston Chapter member or
immediate family (spouse/child) of the member.
 Applicant must be (or will be) enrolled for 2018 in an
institution of higher education with no limitation as to
educational major.
   
Award Criteria: Recipients will be selected based on scholastic
achievement, leadership qualities, extracurricular activities,
reference letter, and writing ability.
