Due to the generosity of our alumni and benefactors, each year MAcc students are eligible for one of our named scholarships, ranging in amounts from $5,000 to full-tuition:
- James S. Turley-EY Leadership Development Initiative Scholarship (full-tuition)
- Verne F. Simons Scholarship Fund
- John T. McCants Prize
- Leonard A. B. Parker Memorial Scholarship
- Lawrence J. O'Connor, Jr. Endowed Fund (two scholarships)
- J. Kenneth S. Arthur Scholarship
- Leon Nad Memorial Scholarship
- H. Joe Nelson III Scholarship
Applicants will be considered for scholarships from general funds as well.
Thanks to the financial support of EY, one of the â€śBig Fourâ€ť public accounting firms, we also anticipate having two named full-tuition scholarships specifically for members of groups that have traditionally been under-represented in the accounting profession.
Furthermore, thanks to Deloitte, another of the Big Four firms, each student admitted to the MAcc Class of 2017Â will be sponsored for a week-long trip to Washington, DC and Norwalk, CT, to learn first-hand about the intersection of public policy and accounting. Deloitteâ€™s financial support will cover a substantial part of airfare, lodging, meals, and programmatic expenses associated with the trip.
