Friends and Business Associates of Richard Giles

The scholarship fund was established by friends and business associates of Richard Giles. This fund is to assist deserving full-time graduate students in accounting who show promise of making outstanding contributions. This is the oldest business scholarship at Grand Valley State University and has helped establish a tradition of philanthropy that thrives today.

Impact

“These scholarships are catalysts for individual careers and for community growth,” said H. James Williams, former dean of the Seidman College of Business. “They help build the foundation for companies that generate wealth in West Michigan. We’re grateful to our alumni and members of the business community who help our students obtain their degrees and make meaningful contribution in the workplace.”
