STANTHORPE'S Power Tynan has received national recognition for its scholarship program.

The accounting and financial services firm has been recognised at the 2017 Accountants Daily Australian Accounting Awards.

Power Tynan was awarded Graduate Program of the Year for the second year in a row, acknowledging the firm's scholarship program run in conjunction with the University of Southern Queensland.

Based on graduate development initiatives, this award considers how the firm develops and retains quality staff through a structured development program.

"The Power Tynan Scholarship Program offers final year high school graduates the opportunity to study a business or commerce degree part-time at USQ while working for our company on a full-time basis,” CEO Paul Hilton said.

"We offer between one and four scholarships each year, and have done so for the last 10 years.”

Mr Hilton said they were "extremely proud” of what the program had achieved.

"We are extremely proud of this program. In regional areas such as Toowoomba and Stanthorpe, it can be difficult to entice the younger generation to stay in town after graduating from high school; however, we have retained all scholarship recipients upon graduating and, due to this program, are a significant employer within our district.”

Zac Bichel is currently completing his final year of study via the University of Southern Queensland while working full-time with Power Tynan, after being named as a scholarship recipient in 2013.

"Working in the industry has obviously helped in my studies but has also shown me the importance of practical knowledge,” he said.

"I have gained a wide range of experience from my time at Power Tynan, moving from tax to superannuation and now to financial planning.”

Power Tynan was named as a finalist in three categories at the Australian Accounting Awards, including Graduate Program of the Year, Community Engagement Program of the Year and Young Accountant of the Year (Peter Rowe).

Members of the Power Tynan team attended the five-star gala dinner in Sydne,y where the winners of the fourth annual Australian Accounting Awards were announced to a crowd of 500 people.
