For the third consecutive year, The Ohio State University Max M. Fisher College of Business is collaborating with the Deloitte Foundation to provide financial support to students who are interested in earning a Master of Accounting (MAcc) degree.

Through the Deloitte Foundation Accounting Scholars Program (DFASP), the Foundation and participating schools, including Fisher, will cover 100% of tuition (excluding books and living expenses) for MAcc students during the 2024-2025 academic year. The nationwide program seeks to support a diverse student population and to strengthen the pipeline of diverse talent entering the CPA profession.

“DFASP continues to serve as an example of how Fisher and Ohio State can collaborate with organizations to bring about positive change within key industries such as accounting,” said Cynthia Turner, assistant dean, chief diversity officer and senior lecturer in accounting at Fisher.

“We are excited by what the DFASP can help provide to tomorrow’s accounting leaders: access to a career-defining education, opportunities to explore the many career pathways that exist within the accounting industry, and the chance to leverage their diverse perspectives and experiences to shape the future of the profession.”    

Since 2021, 15 MAcc students have benefitted from the program’s support, including 10 this past year — double the previous year’s total.
