The McCoy College of Business scholarship recipient at the ACFE Global Conference

Tyler D'Angelo, MAcy 2019, earned a much-coveted place among only 10 recipients of scholarships to attend the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners Global Conference held in Austin in June. Applicants for the scholarships were required to submit information about their academic background and work experience along with an essay about their interest in fraud examination. There were more than 3,000 fraud-fighting professionals attending the conference and Tyler was able to meet some of these experts, to network with the industry's leading subject-matter experts, and to attend multiple continuing professional education seminars over the course of three days. Additionally, he became acquainted with the other scholarship recipients who were from across the United States and from around the world. This is the first time that a Texas State student has received one of the ACFE Global Conference scholarships.
