The Institute of Internal Auditors (IIA) San Diego Chapter Scholarship Opportunity

The Institute of Internal Auditors (IIA) San Diego Chapter will award one-time $1,000 scholarships this year to students interested in pursuing a career in internal auditing. The application and instructions are now available in the IIA San Diego Chapter at:


The deadline for submitting applications is March 29, 2019.

Internal auditing professionals are in demand and the profession offers high entry level salaries and life balance opportunities, but we find that many students are not always familiar with the professions and the potential career opportunities it offers. The IIA San Diego chapter membership includes internal audit professionals from many of the region’s large employers, and we are happy to participate in academic events to increase awareness of the internal audit profession.
