GA Funding & Scholarships

Graduate Assistantship (GA) appointments are the most common form of financial assistance for students in their graduate year. These merit-based appointments are not guaranteed but can provide a financial stipend and require recipients to serve as a graduate assistant to the Department of Accounting. Assistantship duties may include tutoring, research assistance for faculty, teaching assistance for faculty, and other administrative duties.  A graduate assistant for the Accounting Department works ten hours per week during the fall and spring semesters of graduate studies.  All students are automatically considered for a GA appointment during the application process – no further application is required.

Other scholarships may become available to students while they are enrolled in the MAc program.  The majority of these scholarships require applicants to be in graduate school, and therefore, these scholarships cannot be awarded prior to a student’s entrance into the MAc program. 

Should you need additional funding, the University offers a full range of financing options.  For more information visit


9/11 GI Bill and the Yellow Ribbon Program

TCU considers it an honor to welcome as students those who have served in the armed forces and the dependents of those who serve. The university is committed to providing whatever support it can to assist veterans and their dependents in obtaining a college degree. Yellow Ribbon awards are subject to eligibility reviews by the Veteran Affairs Administration and are issued on a first-come, first-serve basis. Therefore, if you plan to claim a financial award under the Yellow Ribbon program, please notify the PPA/MAc Director of your eligibility as early as possible.
