King-Chavez-Parks Fellowship (for minority students)

The primary purpose of this fellowship program is to increase the number of minority students pursuing academic degrees in post-secondary education and teaching in post-secondary institutions in the State of Michigan by providing financial support to this end.

University Fellowships

The University Fellowship Program has been established at Eastern Michigan University for the purpose of recognizing and encouraging superior academic work at the graduate level for full-time or part-time students.

 

The graduate fellowship for students enrolled in full-time or part-time study is an award for academic distinction given to selected students on the basis of their academic performance and meritorious/leadership efforts. The award is in the form of a scholarship ranging from $500 to $4,000 for the academic year, half paid in the fall and half paid in the winter semester.

Graduate students who are appointed as graduate fellows:

1. must hold degree admission to an academic program leading to either a graduate certificate, a master’s, a specialist’s, or a doctoral degree program

2. must maintain a cumulative graduate grade point average of 3.6 during the semesters in which the fellowship award has been granted

3. may re-apply for a second award for one additional academic year if a 3.6 cumulative graduate grade point average is maintained

4. must meet the University’s definition for a full-time graduate student (i.e., enrolled in and complete at least 8 credit hours of approved graduate-level course work) or part-time status (i.e., enroll in and complete at least 4 credit hours of approved graduate-level course work) during each semester for which the award is made. The number of hours depends upon the size of the award. Students who receive a $500-$1,500 award may be part-time and those who receive a $2,000-$4,000 award must be full-time.

Fellows who cannot enroll in and complete the required number of graduate-level credit hours for either the fall and/or winter semesters forfeit their fellowships.

Both new and continuing graduate students are eligible to apply for a fellowship. New graduate students must present a minimum 3.6 cumulative undergraduate grade point average to receive consideration. Graduate students who have already begun their programs must present a minimum 3.6 cumulative graduate grade point average to receive consideration.

Preference is given to new students seeking their first graduate degree and who have no other form of institutional support. Students receiving graduate assistantships are eligible to receive a fellowship, as funds are available. Fellowships are distributed equally among degree programs. Where there are many applicants from one program, fellowship documents are forwarded to the department for faculty input to rank applications.

 

Applicants must complete a Graduate Student Financial Assistance Application Form. Applicants must submit this and the requested documentation to the Graduate School, Starkweather Hall, Eastern Michigan University, Ypsilanti, MI 48197 by February 15 for the fall semester or October 15 for the winter semester. Letters of recommendation and a personal statement regarding academic goals and how a fellowship will help attain the goals should accompany the application form. Incomplete applications will not be considered.

Once award decisions have been made, the
Graduate School will notify all applicants in writing. Copies of this notification will be sent to the appropriate academic department. All communication regarding this award will be sent to the student’s "local" address, unless otherwise requested. Fellowship recipients must accept or decline the award by the date designated on the letter.

Should awards be turned down, a second round of offers may be issued. The process is very competitive with many outstanding applicants.

Financial Aid

To qualify for need-based aid, graduate students must complete and file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The FAFSA collects information about family income and assets, family size, and the number of family members attending college at least half time. After analyzing these data, the federal government determines the Expected Family Contribution, which is identified on the returned Student Aid Report. To find out if a student has "need," the Expected Family Contribution is subtracted from EMU's cost of education. Need is the positive difference between the student's ability to pay and the cost of education. Most federal and state aid programs are awarded based on a student's need.

The Free Application for Federal Student Aid should be completed and filed in January of each year prior to fall enrollment. Graduate students who are unconditionally admitted to a graduate degree program will be awarded financial aid once EMU receives their application results from the federal processor. Aid is automatically awarded for fall and winter semesters. Students who need financial aid for spring and summer terms must file an additional application at the Office of Financial Aid, 403 Pierce Hall.

Students applying for financial aid at EMU must submit Financial Aid Transcripts to the Office of Financial Aid from each college and university previously attended regardless of whether aid was received. Federal regulations prohibit the disbursement of aid until all Financial Aid Transcripts are on file.

Accounting Scholarships Outside EMU

AICPA

Scholarships for Minority Accounting Students

The AICPA Scholarships for Minority Accounting Students provides competitive awards to outstanding full time undergraduate minority students at regionally accredited institutions to encourage their: selection of accounting as a major, entry into the profession and ultimately achieving the CPA designation. Full time graduate students (who are not CPAs) seeking a masters degree in accounting or taxation and students pursuing a masters in business administration, if their undergraduate degree is in accounting, are also eligible for this program.

Undergraduate students must have completed at least 30 semester hours or equivalent of college work, with at least six hours in accounting. All applicants must have an overall and accounting grade point average of at least 3.3. Awards are primarily based on merit (academic achievement). For purposes of this program, the AICPA defines minority students as those of Black, Native American, Pacific Island races, or of Hispanic ethnic origin. All applicants must be U.S. citizens.

The scholarships are awarded by the AICPA Minority Initiatives Committee and are funded by the AICPA Foundation from monies contributed by the AICPA, its members, public accounting firms, and others. The scholarships are awarded once each year (in July) for the following academic year. All application materials must be received by the AICPA by July 1 of each year.

The maximum award is $5,000 and over the past 20 years the AICPA has awarded more than $6 million in scholarships to minority students.

To be eligible for a minority undergraduate scholarship, applicants must:

·         be a declared accounting major (this must be indicated on your transcript) with an overall and accounting grade point average (GPA) of at least 3.3;

·         have satisfactorily completed at least 30 semester hours, or 45 quarter hours, or equivalent college work, including at least six semester hours (or equivalent) in accounting; and

All applicants are required to submit a letter of recommendation from either a faculty member or a CPA.

Application forms can be obtained: http://www.aicpa.org/download/members/div/career/SchshpMinorityApp.pdf

Fellowships for Minority Doctoral Students

The primary objective of the AICPA Fellowships for Minority Doctoral Students is to enable more minorities to enter and move ahead in the accounting profession and academe. Recognizing the fact that professors serve as role models, a second objective is to increase the number of CPA role models who can positively influence the career decisions of a college student. These competitive fellowships are available to minority candidates who have been accepted into a doctoral accounting program. Fellowships of up to $12,000 are awarded once a year to full time minority accounting scholars who show significant potential to become accounting educators.

The scholarships are awarded by the Institute's Minority Initiatives Committee and are funded by the AICPA Foundation from monies contributed by the AICPA, its members, public accounting firms, and others. Considerable weight will be given to application from those who have attained the CPA designation. Additionally, AICPA membership and committee service will also be considered.

Fellowships are awarded once each year (in June) for the following academic year. All application materials must be received by the AICPA by April 1 of each year.

For purposes of this program, the AICPA defines minority students as those of Black, Native American, Pacific Island races, or of Hispanic ethnic origin. All applicants must be U.S. citizens.

The committee may grant fellowships contingent upon acceptance of the candidate into a doctoral program in an accredited recognized school of business or to candidates who have already been accepted.

To be eligible for a minority doctoral fellowship, you must:

·         have applied to and/or been accepted into an accredited doctoral program with a concentration in accounting;

·         have earned a masters degree and/or completed a minimum of three years full-time experience in the practice of accounting;
