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 $2,500 to $4,000.
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.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020 Spring Awards Banquet has been canceled. Students who have applied for fellowships and scholarships will be notified by mid-April whether they will receive an award.
