2010 MAcc Class Gift Awarded to MAcc Class of 2011
Over the last several years, departing Master of Accountancy (MAcc) students have provided a class gift to the department in the form of contributions to the MAcc Excellence Fund. When establishing this fund, previous MAcc students indicated that they would like the proceeds to be used for MAcc scholarships. The MAcc students also indicated they would like current MAcc students to obtain some financial assistance for CPA exam review courses and exam fees, particularly for those students not receiving funding from prospective employers.
In keeping with these criteria, the department will award seven scholarships for academic achievement and 11 awards for CPA review assistance for those who have incurred out-of-pocket CPA review expenses.
The department awards many graduate assistantships and scholarships to incoming MAcc students every year but, unfortunately, cannot offer these awards to all incoming students. Thus, this year's academic achievement awards from the MAcc Excellence Fund are going to help seven current students who did not receive prior financial assistance but who performed very well in the fall 2010 semester of their MAcc studies.
