Betty Schmidt, a Licensed Public Accountant (LPA) from Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, served as president of the IAPA during 1986-87. Unfortunately, she passed away much too soon. In her memory and honor, the IAPA established the Betty Schmidt Memorial Scholarship Fund to help support outstanding students who are Idaho residents majoring in Accounting at Idaho universities and colleges.

The Betty Schmidt Memorial Scholarship Foundation is proud to announce the recipients of scholarships for the 2017/2018 collegiate year. Congratulations! They are:
