Ohio State, Deloitte Foundation announce master’s scholarship program


The Ohio State University’s Max M. Fisher College of Business, through a collaboration with the Deloitte Foundation, will look to aid fifth-year accounting master’s students through the Deloitte Foundation Accounting Scholars Program.

The six-year, $30M DFASP looks to help fifth-year accounting master’s program candidates from select Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business-accredited colleges and universities, which includes Fisher, to boost the representation of diverse accounting professionals. DFASP is part of Deloitte’s Making Accounting Diverse and Equitable (MADE) program, announced earlier this year, which is committing $75 million to the future success of diverse accounting professionals.

Fisher and the Deloitte Foundation will cover 100% of tuition, excluding textbooks and living expenses, for up to five selected Master of Accounting (MAcc) students in all.

“Ohio State’s modern land-grant mission is clear: to provide the educational and research opportunities that drive growth and build strong leaders, businesses and communities,” said Anil Makhija, dean and John W. Berry, Sr. chair in business at Fisher College of Business, in a statement. “Fundamental to that mission are talent pipelines that are reflective of our society. We look forward to working with the Deloitte Foundation to reduce educational costs as barriers to a strong and diverse accounting workforce.”

“Our Deloitte Foundation is laser focused on driving education initiatives that help prepare the next generation of diverse business leaders,” said Erin Scanlon, Deloitte Foundation president, in a statement. “We are proud to fund the Deloitte Foundation Accounting Scholars Program as an important step in strengthening the pipeline of next generation CPA talent.”

Applications for the 2022-2023 OSU school year will be collected this fall, with scholarships granted in 2022. Interested students can apply for admission to Fisher’s MAcc program, before separately applying to the DFASP.
