Scholarship Information

MAcc Director Academic Merit Scholarships for Vermont resident students are designed to reward exceptional academic performance during the first 15 credit hours of MAcc graduate coursework. These scholarships are awarded based upon the student’s MAcc GPA to date and professional promise. The scholarships partially offset the tuition charges during the final semester in the program.

Vermont non-resident students may be offered MAcc Director Academic Merit Scholarships at the time they are accepted into the MAcc program or after they complete their accounting prerequisite courses. The scholarships require an undergraduate GPA of 3.5/4.0 or higher. The GMAT and TOEFL scores are also considered, if applicable. The scholarships are prorated across the remaining credit hours in the program. A 3.5 graduate GPA is required to continue to receive the full scholarship award.

Both resident and nonresident students are encouraged to apply to the MAcc Director for consideration as a graduate student employee within the Grossman School of Business. MAcc students are assigned to one or two faculty members for up to five hours per week per faculty member. Duties include grading and research assistance. Students are compensated for the hours worked each week.
