Rob Dutkiewicz, president of Clayton & McKervey, a certified public accounting and business advisory firm helping closely held businesses compete in the global marketplace, is pleased to announce the recipients of two scholarships awarded through Oakland University’s School of Business Administration. The awards for the Clayton & McKervey Scholarship and the Dutkiewicz Family Scholarship were presented April 13 at the OU Accounting and Finance Department’s Spring Banquet.

The Clayton & McKervey Scholarship was awarded to Carolyn Schweiger, a senior at OU majoring in accounting and minoring in management information systems. A resident of Richmond, Mich., Carolyn is currently an intern at Lear Corporation. The Dutkiewicz Family Scholarship was presented to Kevin Doody, a Lake Orion, Mich., resident who graduates this spring with a Master of Accounting.

“Clayton & McKervey has a passion to help others succeed,” Dutkiewicz said. “It is our privilege to partner with Oakland University’s business school to recognize students who have made an extra effort to achieve success in many facets of their lives, and we look forward to seeing them thrive in their future roles in the accounting and finance profession.”

The Clayton & McKervey Scholarship is a $1,500 annual scholarship established in 2011 to be applied to OU tuition for an undergraduate student who:

  • Exhibits an outstanding combination of academic performance and extracurricular activities
  • Has declared an accounting major and achieved major standing
  • Is currently enrolled in at least one accounting major course at OU

The Dutkiewicz Family established its $2,500 annual scholarship in 2014 for a student who:

  • Is a declared accounting or finance major with major standing
  • Is currently enrolled in at least one accounting or finance major course at OU
  • Has exhibited an outstanding combination of academic performance and extracurricular activities

More information about the criteria is available on OU’s SBA scholarship page.

In addition to the scholarship awards, the OU chapter of Beta Alpha Psi—an honorary organization for financial information students and professionals—named Rob Dutkiewicz its Business Information Professional of the Year at the banquet. Beta Alpha Psi annually presents this award to an honoree who has contributed to the profession through his or her position within the accounting, finance and information systems professions and through involvement in professional affairs and associations. Dutkiewicz, an OU alum who received his Bachelor’s degree in Accounting, currently serves on the OU School of Business Administration Board of Visitors.
