The Ritchie-Jennings Memorial Scholarship Program was named after two ACFE members from Houston, Texas, Larry Jennings, CFE, CPA, 49; and Tracy Ritchie, CFE, CPA, 41. They were among five people – all employees of Houston-based Union Texas Petroleum Holdings Inc. – fatally wounded when terrorists in Karachi, Pakistan fired upon their vehicle (en route to Union Texas’ Karachi office) on Nov. 14, 1997. Mr. Ritchie served as senior audit supervisor and Mr. Jennings served as audit manager for the company.
The Ritchie-Jennings Memorial scholarship awards $10,000, $5,000, $2,500, and $1,000 towards the education of students who have an interest in pursuing a career in fraud examination. Scholarships are paid directly towards the student’s university, and include a one-year ACFE Student Associate membership .
