The Department of Accounting has scholarships available for graduate students based on merit and need. Loans and other financial assistance are available for graduate students but these are not administered by the department. Information on general financial aid (other than departmental scholarships) can be found at: www.miami.edu/ofas/.
Through the generosity of alumni and friends of the University of Miami School of Business Administration, certain endowed and annual scholarships are made available to graduate students enrolled in Accounting-related degree programs. Donors have established endowed scholarships in perpetuity; annual scholarships depend upon annual funding from donors.
Donor scholarships are for the purpose of recruiting, retaining or recognizing students of high academic merit. For certain donor scholarships, financial need is an additional consideration. The number and amount of scholarship awards may vary from year to year.
Donor scholarships are generally awarded to full-time students. However, due to the “fifth year” educational requirement to qualify for CPA certification, part-time graduate students enrolled in an accounting-related degree program may be considered for donor scholarships administered by the Department of Accounting. The following is a list of the department scholarships available:
