Scholarships and Awards

All students admitted to the MACC program are automatically considered for other financial awards. No additional application is needed for awards provided by the MACC program. Exceptional applicants may receive a combination of awards.

Our largest financial awards are provided to students at our Decision in a Day events.

The MACC Scholars program rewards students for their excellent performance in their undergraduate studies and on the GMAT exam. Qualifying students automatically receive an award package of $1,500 fellowship for all students and an additional award of $15,090 (for 2019-20 academic year) to cover the difference between in-state and out-of-state program fee rates for South Carolina non-residents. 

Students are eligible for the MACC Scholars program by meeting all of the following requirements:

  • Completed at least 90 credit hours
  • A minimum GMAT score of 570, or recipient of GMAT waiver
  • A minimum 3.50 GPA in each of the following categories: overall or most recent 60 hours attempted (whichever is higher), business core prerequisites and upper-level accounting prerequisites

Graduate assistant positions consist of working with faculty as teaching assistants. These positions require working 10 hours per week. Graduate assistants receive a per-semester stipend of $2,000 and an award to reduce non-resident program fee rates to the South Carolina resident rate. We traditionally award 16 to 24 graduate assistant positions per semester. Graduate assistant positions are offered based on student academic performance, community service and extracurricular activities, GMAT scores and other factors. The selection process for these positions is ongoing, with availability depending on the number of qualified admitted students.

These merit-based awards (scholarships) vary per individual based on student academic performance, GMAT scores and other factors. The selection process for these awards is evaluated at each application deadline, with availability depending on the number of qualified admitted students and remaining funds to be allocated. To maximize your opportunity to receive other financial awards, we encourage you to complete your application as early as possible..

Applicants receiving a fellowship award or graduate assistant position also receive in-state tuition. We prioritize providing in-state tuition awards to limit the financial burden of attending our program for students residing in states other than South Carolina.
