As part of an ongoing effort to give students an opportunity to learn, grow and get hands-on experience, Fourlane recently launched a $375,000 scholarship Endowment Fund for students at The University of Texas at Austin McCombs School of Business.
The scholarship is spearheaded by Marjorie Adams, founder and CEO of Fourlane. The firm is a pioneer of implementation and “ERP” related services in the small- to mid-sized business space, providing thousands of clients help with their financial systems, accounting software and ERP system challenges.
For Adams, the motivation behind the scholarship is simple: She hopes that helping one now will help many in the future, which she experienced with her own journey through college.
“Having had a scholarship myself in college, I know just how helpful and exciting it can be for students and their families,” Adams says. “To be able to give back and hopefully give the next generation of workers a real-life, transformational experience is an honor for me and a goal for the Fourlane team.”
The Fourlane experience is unique because it focuses on advisory and leadership versus traditional bookkeeping roles, such as tax and audit. “At Fourlane, we look for creative thinkers and leaders who can strategically help our customers grow and build relationships based on trust, loyalty and results,” Adams says. “We believe the young minds of today’s student base are more than capable of doing just that, helping carve out a niche and get invaluable experience, while also teaching me and the Fourlane team along the way.”
Fourlane already has had McComb students intern for several years and welcomes the next wave through this new scholarship Endowment Fund.
