Scholarship Application Open for iMPA Students
There are Departmental scholarships available for integrated MPA students who will hold graduate status in academic year 2019-2020! Applications for the 2019-2020 academic year are being accepted through Friday, June 28, 2019.
Department of Accounting scholarships are funded through financial contributions made by alumni, business partners, and friends of the department. These scholarships are directed towards students in their fifth (graduate) year to help defray graduate tuition and fees.
Scholarships range from $500 to $5,000 and are disbursed during the fall and spring semesters each year. Award decisions are made during the summer and applicants are notified of the decisions as soon as possible.
When making these awards, the Department of Accounting equally weighs academic performance at the University of Texas and financial need. In order for the Department to determine the level of financial need, students must provide complete and accurate information regarding their estimated financial resources and academic debt on the scholarship application. The Department considers all sources of award monies made to students to maximize the number of students who receive scholarships. Receipt of a major scholarship from sources outside the Department of Accounting reduces the likelihood of receiving a Departmental scholarship.
Some scholarship donors stipulate that the awards be made only to students with specific interests or qualifications. Certain application questions are designed to identify these students, and while you are not required to answer all of the questions, the Department of Accounting may not be able to consider your application for all awards without this information.
If you have questions about the application process, contact Keri Ledezma.
