Tax and business consulting firm UHY Mann Frankfort Stein & Lipp Advisors (UHY MFSL) recently committed a minimum of $50,000 for an endowed scholarship in accounting at Mays Business School. The firm’s gift will specifically provide scholarships for students in the Professional Program at Mays.

The firm will also match gifts from partners and staff to this endowment over a five-year period.

“This significant endowment will benefit countless future accounting students,” said Jim Benjamin, head of the accounting department. “It is also particularly gratifying to receive such support from a firm which has only recently begun recruiting from our Professional Program.”

Mays Business School currently enrolls more than 4,400 undergraduate students and 800 graduate students. Mays is nationally ranked among public business schools for the quality of its undergraduate program, MBA program and faculty scholarship.

The master’s program in accounting, of which many students in the professional program are a part, was ranked as the 10th best in the nation in the CPA Personnel Report’s 23rd Annual Survey of Professors.

“Recruiting is integral to our firm’s growth plans,” said Paul Mueller, a managing director with UHY MFSL and the National Tax Director for UHY Advisors, Inc. “This financial commitment underscores our appreciation and support for the continuing quality of Mays’ Professional Program.”

UHY MFSL is the Houston office of UHY Advisors, Inc. (UHY), the nation’s 16th largest professional services firm providing tax, accounting and business advisory services. With more than 1,000 staff members in 20 locations, UHY is a premier provider to both publicly-traded and middle market clients.
