The Fisher School of Accounting administers a number of awards for students pursuing a Master of Accounting degree. The amounts, number, and source of awards vary from year to year. Academic performance, particularly in upper-division accounting coursework, is emphasized in selecting recipients. Generally, 20 to 40 one-time cash awards are made in amounts ranging from $2,000 to $3,500.
Currently Enrolled Students
To be considered for Fisher School of Accounting awards, students should complete and submit an Application for Graduate Awards which is available on our forms page from mid-November to February 1. Completing this one application makes the student eligible for all available endowed scholarships and fellowships. Finalists for awards will be mailed an invitation (mid-March) to attend our annual awards banquet where the winners will be announced. The cash proceeds will be disbursed during the first week of Fall classes.
Applicants to our Master of Accounting program are automatically considered for fellowships based upon their academic performance upon admission. No application is necessary. After admission, any currently enrolled student entering their fifth year of studies may apply for a fellowship as described above.
