Accounting Department Scholarships

Scholarships and excellence recognition awards are competitively awarded by the Department of Accounting Scholarship Committee to all accounting majors on the basis of academic excellence, merit, professionalism, and need. Amounts vary from year to year depending on contributions and are available for undergraduate, masters, and doctoral students.  If you have specific questions regarding the Accounting Department scholarship, contact the Accounting department at (940)565-3080.

Eligibility
