Nicholas Lloyd, a student in the College of Business and Economics’s Department of Accountancy, was recently named a Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (PCAOB) Scholarship recipient for 2023. The purpose of the award is to recognize academic excellence in undergraduate and graduate accounting students, and includes a $10,000 credit for tuition. The scholarship requires students to be nominated by an accredited, nominating accounting program while also maintaining high ethical and academic standards.
Beyond the classroom, Lloyd is also involved in a number of extracurricular activities and organizations across campus. He currently serves as an Honors College Senator in Boise State’s student government, is the Vice President of Outreach for Beta Alpha Psi and the Vice President of Finance for Beta Gamma Sigma. He is also a standing member of Phi Kappa Phi, as well as the cofounder of the Special Olympics Club on Boise State campus.
Lloyd enrolled at Boise State in 2021 and will graduate in spring of 2025 with dual majors in Accountancy and Finance, as well as a minor in Analytics. He is currently interning as an accountant for a major food production company based in Boise, Simplot Foods, and hopes to spend his remaining time at Boise State mentoring the next generation of accounting students before he graduates.
“Like many, paying for school has been my biggest concern since enrollment. Without scholarship funding, I wouldn’t have chosen to explore my interests in finance and analytics, ” Lloyd said. “Scholarships enabled me to get involved in unpaid student organization positions where I’ve had the opportunity to volunteer and mentor other students. I couldn’t be more thankful to PCAOB for this opportunity, and to the Department of Accountancy for my nomination.”
