A University of Iowa doctoral student received a $10,000 scholarship from the KPMG Foundation.

According to a KPMG Foundation release, R. Christopher Small was awarded the scholarship to pursue a doctorate at the UI. The scholarship is renewable for up to five years, the release said.

Since 1994, the foundation has awarded more than $10 million to 309 African-American, Latino-American, and Native-American scholars who pursue doctorates. The scholarship aims to increase the representation of minority students or professors in business schools, the release said.

Bernard Milano, the president of the KPMG Foundation, said Small “has demonstrated that dedication, hard work, and ambition pay off. Like all our scholarship recipients, he is a key to our country’s future, and we look forward to following his success after graduation.”

According to the release, Small began his doctoral studies at the UI this year; he received the scholarship while attending Harvard.
