Two University of Wisconsin Oshkosh students, Daniel Skinkis and Jonathan Dudzinski, were recently honored by the Milwaukee chapter of Financial Executives International (FEI). The College of Business students were honored at a ceremony in Brookfield on Tuesday, April 10, 2012.
Dudzinski, a finance and accounting double major, was awarded FEI’s 2012 Outstanding Student Award.
Skinkis, a finance major with an insurance and financial planning minor, was awarded a Roger Buchholz Memorial FEI Junior Scholarship.
University of Wisconsin Oshkosh students have won the Roger Buchholz Memorial FEI Junior Scholarship eight out of the last 10 years.
Milwaukee FEI, in conjunction with area educational institutions, recognizes two top student achievers from selected area colleges. Two scholarships in the amount of $2,000 are awarded to outstanding students selected for this distinguished achievement.
To be considered for these awards, Dudzinski and Skinkis were required to have a cumulative grade point average of 3.00 and at least a 3.50 on a 4.00 scale in business courses directly related to their major. Selection criteria, including the quality of the essay submitted, academic merit, demonstrated leadership, and involvement in civic, religious, academic and/or other career related activities, emphasize their potential for career success in corporate financial management in addition to academic and personal achievement.
