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.
