The PLANProgramhas been established to partner with our member firms to provide Finance and Accounting students with an opportunity to obtain valuable and relevant work experience at a reputable firm.

Under this program, a subsidy of $7,500 is awarded to a selected member firm to utilize in offsetting the payroll costs associated with employing a Finance and Accounting Intern. The subsidy will be issued to the awarded firm at the conclusion of the Internship Program, and with documentation of meeting the minimum requirements of the PLAN Program. There is one (1) subsidy available, and one (1) member firm will be selected for the 2020 PLAN Program.
