Financial Support

Several forms of financial support for your graduate education are available to you on a competitive basis. Virtually all of our students hold a teaching and research associateship or a university fellowship. Each of these forms carries a monthly stipend, plus a full waiver of resident or nonresident tuition and fees. All university fellows, teaching associates, and research associates carry a full-time equivalent course load.

Teaching and Research Associateships

Our students are provided a combination of teaching and research associateships and are paid a very competitive stipend. Both the teaching and research associateships complement your graduate education; we encourage all of our students to accept such appointments during the course of their graduate studies.

University Fellowships and Support

A limited number of university fellowships are available for highly qualified U.S. and international applicants, including those who have already received their master's degrees from other institutions. The AICPA and AAA provide supplementary grants of $5,000 annually for up to three years; in addition, the AACSB offers $12,000 first-year fellowships. These awards to outstanding applicants are independent of university financial aid; you should apply directly to each organization. Students in residence are also eligible for several supplementary grants and prizes awarded by the AMIS faculty. In addition, we encourage students to compete for national grants which permit full-time attention to the dissertation during their final year.
