PBA accounting majors have a friend in Paul Bremer, a local resident who has dedicated his life to an accounting career and made an equal commit to serving others.


Through the Paul C. Bremer Endowed Scholarship, students receive financial assistance, encouraging them to complete their studies to serve professionally in South Florida. To honor his service, friends of Bremer established the endowed scholarship for PBA accounting majors.

“To earn a CPA license, students need graduate level courses in addition to the bachelor’s degree,” Dr. Leslie Turner, dean of the Rinker School of Business and professor of accounting, said. “That factor makes the Bremer scholarship extremely important in affording students the ability to complete all educational requirements for a CPA license. In addition, Mr. Bremer meets with, mentors and advises these students on how to succeed and thrive while maintaining high ethical standards in the accounting profession.”

A long-time supporter of the University, Bremer is the founding chairman of Palm Beach Atlantic University’s audit committee. Additionally, he is a board member and past president of Children’s Health Care Charity, Inc. (The Honda Classic), treasurer and board member of Nicklaus Children’s Health Care Foundation and board member of the Kiwanis Club of West Palm Beach Foundation, Inc. He has served as an officer in charitable and civic organizations since starting his career in 1965.

Recently, Bremer met with several scholarship recipients including, from left, Lourdes Hernandez of Wellington, Melissa van Eyk of Jensen Beach, and Martin Deacon of Peachtree Corners, Georgia.
