If you are seeking scholarship opportunities for the Fisher MAcc program, be sure to check your eligibility to apply for an AICPA scholarship. The majority of the scholarships have an April 1 application deadline. Scholarships include (but are not limited to):
- The John L. Carey Scholarship: provides financial assistance to liberal arts and other non-business related degree holders who are pursuing graduate studies in accounting and the CPA designation. Amount: $5,000/year
- The AICPA Minority Scholarship: provides awards to outstanding undergraduate and graduate minority students who plan to pursue the CPA licensure. Amount: $3,000/year
- The AICPA/Accountemps Student Scholarship: provides financial assistance to accounting majors who plan to become CPAs. Amount: $2,500/year
The above three are but one of many scholarships that are out there. My advice – apply early (pay close attention to application processes and deadlines) and often.
Several Fisher MAcc students have received these scholarships in the past so, if you’re eligible to apply, please do so!
