CHICAGO–(ENEWSPF)–November 2, 2015.  Roosevelt University forensic accounting students have won eight of nine scholarships from the Association of Certified Fraud Examiner (ACFE) Chicago Chapter’s new Dan Spreche Memorial Scholarship Fund.

The Heller College of Business students receiving the scholarships are Colin McVisk, Guadalupe Cotto, Aliya Arslanbayeva, Ewa Anikiej, Darlene Morris-Fullerton, Patricia Greenfeld, Artem Kornilov and Marisha Chareonvooti.  This is the first time the scholarships have been awarded.

Faculty advisor Husam Abu Khadra said the scholarship honors Dan Spreche, an investigator for the Chicago Inspector General’s Office, who died at the age of 32.

“We are very excited that our students won so many of the awards,” Abu Khadra said.  “This scholarship supports educational opportunities and encourages recipients to become future leaders in a field that fights fraud and corruption.”

The Forensic Accounting program offered in the Heller College is one of few programs of its kind in the region. The program trains students in anti-fraud and financial forensics and helps students succeed with the CFE exam. For further information, visit
