Arthur R. Wyatt Scholarship

The Arthur R. Wyatt Scholarship was established by Arthur Ramer Wyatt through endowments at both the University of Illinois Foundation and the CPA Endowment Fund of Illinois.  Scholarships from both programs, administered by the Department, are for the benefit of students entering either the Master of Accounting Science or the Master of Science in Accountancy with Specialization in Taxation at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and who (1) demonstrate dedication to becoming a CPA and follow in Professor Wyatt’s esteemed footsteps by exhibiting the highest degree of professionalism, (2) demonstrate financial need, and (3) demonstrate the highest academic merit. 

Dr. Wyatt received his B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. degrees in accountancy from the University of Illinois. He served on the Commerce faculty from 1950 to 1965, and then went on to international success in the private sector as a partner and managing director for accounting principles at Arthur Andersen. A highly regarded elder statesman, he was a member of the Financial Accounting Standards Board from 1985-87 and the United States representative on the International Accounting Standards Committee from 1988-93. He chaired the committee from 1990-93. After retiring from Andersen in 1993, Wyatt returned to the University of Illinois and his first love, teaching. Professor Wyatt retired from teaching in 2003.
