Last year the Department of Accounting and Information Systems awarded more than $400,000 in scholarships to our undergraduate and graduate students. Typically, the scholarship application is available starting in December of each year. The deadline for submission is the third week of January. Applications for admission to the M.S. program must be completed by January 1 in order for students to qualify for a scholarship.
To apply for a graduate scholarship and/or assistantship, you must be an admitted M.S. student who will graduate at the end of the spring semester 2019, or summer semester 2019. You may receive only one graduate scholarship.
Selection criteria for awards are:
If you are a current MSU student or a non-MSU student who has been admitted to the M.S. program, the scholarship application is available at scholarships.msu.edu; if not, the scholarship application is available at students.broad.msu.edu/acc/scholarship/grad-info.
The FAFSA application is available at fafsa.ed.gov.

The following resources may be helpful to you as you explore financing your education.
Limited opportunities exist within the Department of Accounting and Information Systems for graduate assistantships; however, other departments on campus hire graduate assistants. For more information, please visit the Graduate School website.
Students should visit the MSU Office of Financial Aid to learn more about financial aid for graduate students.
Faculty may occasionally hire students to assist in grading assignments. If you are interested in employment, please inquire with individual faculty members and also let the M.S. program director know that you are interested in this type of employment.
Part-time jobs are available to students on and off campus. The Office of Financial Aid provides several student employment resources. In addition, students should check local newspapers such as the State News and Lansing State Journal for position announcements. We also recommend visiting and/or calling local businesses and organizations of interest to you.
Some students work full-time on campus and pursue their graduate studies on a part-time basis. Information regarding employment opportunities at MSU can be found through Human Resources.
