Bryant University in partnership with PricewaterhouseCoopers, LLP, one of the nation’s top accounting firms, will once again host the PricewaterhouseCoopers Accounting Careers Leadership Institute (PwCACLI).

The institute will be hosted on Bryant University’s beautiful campus in Smithfield, RI from June 21-26, 2015.

PwCACLI is an exciting and educational week-long, hands-on opportunity for Latino/a and African American or Black high school juniors (rising seniors) to learn more about the accounting profession and about the key role accountants play in society. Throughout the program, students will work directly with Bryant University faculty, staff, and students, as well as professionals from PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC).

Program participants will:

  • Take part in leadership, teamwork, and problem-solving exercises with Bryant faculty, staff, and PwC accounting professionals.
  • Spend a day at PwC offices in Boston and talk with professionals who perform a surprising variety of functions in the field of accounting.
  • Experience college life by living in a residence hall on the Bryant campus.

Except for transportation (from the student’s hometown to Bryant University), there is no fee to participate in the program.

To apply, students must be a college-bound African-American or Latino/a high school junior (rising senior) with a GPA of 3.0 or higher. Students must have also completed Algebra II by the end of your junior year.
