The bursary recognizes recently retired Welch LLP Partner, Bill Irwin, who was dedicated to mentoring accounting students at the firm.

“The Partners at Welch are delighted to honour our retired Partner, Bill Irwin, with the establishment of this new bursary,” said Michael Burch, Managing Partner at Welch LLP. “Bill was, and continues to be, a great mentor to our new CPA Students and to our newly graduating CPAs.
