Apr 21, 2015

Ohio Northern University Dicke College of Business Administration student Courtney Horstman, a senior accounting major from Delphos, Ohio, was awarded the 2015-16 Ritchie-Jennings Memorial Scholarship by the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners (ACFE).

Horstman is one of 30 students selected to receive the scholarship. The Ritchie‐Jennings Memorial Scholarship Program was created in honor of Tracy Ritchie, CFE, and Larry Jennings, CFE, who both died in a terrorist attack in Pakistan on Nov. 12, 1997. Through this scholarship program, the ACFE Foundation works to encourage students to pursue careers in fraud examination and provide resources for research on the detection and deterrence of fraud.

Horstman will apply her scholarship toward tuition and fees in the ONU Master of Professional Practice in Accounting program for the 2015-16 academic year. She will study forensic accounting and audit services in the program.
