Corcentric Announces 2014 Scholarship Program Winner
August 18, 2014, MCLEAN, VA — Corcentric, a leading provider of accounts payable automation and electronic invoicing solutions, today announced that it has awarded its annual Accounting Software Scholarship to Kathleen Belisle, of Battle Ground, WA. Ms. Belisle, who wrote the winning essay, addresses the following question posed by Corcentric.
Today, with online banking, debit cards, and PayPal payments, managing your personal finances may seem easier. But with no actual cash changing hands, tracking your account balances becomes increasingly important? If you were teaching a course on managing personal finances, using your own experiences as an example, how would you instruct your students to take charge and manage their finances effectively?
In her response, Ms. Belisle discusses the challenges of effectively managing her personal finances, while also balancing school and her home life. She explains, “What I have personally found useful is to keep my receipts, set rules for spending limits, and to set a weekly alarm to sit down and review my account.” She discusses the lessons she has learned through her personal experiences and how they could be helpful in teaching other students the importance of effectively managing their own personal finances.
The Corcentric Accounting Software Scholarship was created to help offset the increasingly heavy cost of college and is open to all currently enrolled full-time college freshmen, sophomores, and juniors, as well as college-bound, U.S. high school seniors.
Corecentric thanks all the participants who submitted essays and wishes them well in their endeavors.
