  • Scholarships

    Rice University has scholarship opportunities to attract the highest quality candidates to its Master of Accounting Program.

    Due to the generosity of our alumni and benefactors, each year MAcc students are eligible for one of our named scholarships, ranging in amounts from $5,000 to full-tuition:

    • James S. Turley-EY Leadership Development Initiative Scholarship (full-tuition)
    • Verne F. Simons Scholarship Fund
    • John T. McCants Prize
    • Leonard A. B. Parker Memorial Scholarship
    • Lawrence J. O'Connor, Jr. Endowed Fund (two scholarships)
    • J. Kenneth S. Arthur Scholarship
    • Leon Nad Memorial Scholarship
    • H. Joe Nelson III Scholarship

    Applicants will be considered for scholarships from general funds as well.

    Thanks to the financial support of EY, one of the “Big 4” public accounting firms, we also anticipate having two named full-tuition scholarships specifically for members of groups that have traditionally been under-represented in the accounting profession.

    Furthermore, thanks to Deloitte, another of the “Big 4” firms, each student admitted to the MAcc Class of 2016 will be sponsored for a week-long trip to Washington, DC to learn first-hand about the intersection of public policy and accounting. Deloitte’s financial support will cover a substantial part of airfare, lodging, meals, and programmatic expenses associated with the trip.
