Masters in Accounting Scholarships

Masters in Accounting Scholarships

Many scholarship programs are funded by private trusts, or corporations, or individuals who have provided endowments either on a national basis or to individual universities. Some of these programs are designated for a particular academic field, such as business. The case can be made that a student pursuing a Master of Accounting degree is engaged in an academic program relevant to business, or finance, or in a stretch, public administration. Our collection of scholarship opportunities is merely a sampler of the programs that are out there, many of which are below the radar screen because they are administered by individual universities. For that reason it is always wise to check with your school's student financial aid office about any endowed degree programs that might be available to graduate students in accounting.

  1. American Institute of CPAs has scholarship programs for students who are in a graduate program for accounting, and for working CPAs who are interested in gaining a teaching credential. There are also AICPA sponsored scholarship programs for minority students and for students who have enrolled in a graduate program in accounting with no previous academic background in accounting or business.
  2. California Society of Certified Public Accountants has an Education Foundation that funds scholarships for graduate students enrolled in a program that will lead to the CPA exam and licensure. There are also CalCPA chapters scattered around the state that offer scholarship programs on a local basis. There are fourteen local scholarship programs available to accounting students in branches stretching from San Diego to San Francisco.
  3. Government Finance Officers Association has four endowed scholarship programs that have been provided by members or families of Association members. The Daniel Goldberg Scholarship is open to graduate students in accounting. The Frank Greathouse Scholarship is awarded to students at the undergraduate or graduate level of accountancy study. The Minorities in Government Scholarship goes to a minority student enrolled in an undergraduate or graduate program in public administration, accounting or finance. The Professional Development Scholarship is for a professional with at least two years' work experience enrolled in a graduate level accounting or finance degree program.
  4. American Association of University Women has several scholarship programs for graduate students, some of which are applicable for women who are seeking a graduate degree in accounting. The Career Development Grants are for women who hold a bachelor's degree and are enrolling in a graduate program, are changing careers or are re-entering the work force. There is also an International Fellowship program for women who are not citizens of the country or permanent residents.
  5. Educational Foundation for Women in Accounting has several scholarship programs for women at various stages in their lives, who are pursuing an undergraduate or graduate degree in accounting. There is a fund for women in transition, a fund for women in need, and three programs underwritten by sponsors, or members, or families of members.
