This intensive educational experience is meant to complement, enhance and deepen what is being learned in the traditional classroom.

Accounting Department Scholarships

The Accounting Department awards merit-based scholarships funded by corporations, public accounting firms, the Minnesota Society of Certified Public Accountants and private donors, as well as two scholarships which honor the memory of two accounting faculty: Frank J. Coglitore, whose specialty was auditing, and Patrick McGowan, who taught tax accounting.

Application: Nearly all Department of Accounting scholarships are merit-based, not need-based. The Department of Accounting Scholarship Committee does not have access to, and does not consider your financial aid status in the selecting recipients of the merit-based scholarships.

In considering merit, the Committee gives more weight to a sustained record. As a result, preference is normally given to applicants who will be seniors in the fall.
