Doctoral Student Nomination Process
The Financial Accounting & Reporting Section Doctoral Consortium will be held Friday morning, January 27, 2017, at the Westin Charlotte in Charlotte, North Carolina prior to the 2017 Financial Accounting & Reporting Section Midyear Meeting (which will be held on Friday afternoon on January 27th and on Saturday, January 28th).
Students are nominated by doctoral granting schools. To encourage doctoral student attendance, FARS makes a substantial financial commitment to the Consortium. FARS will waive the student registration fee for the FARS Conference, waive the lunch ticket fees for the Friday and Saturday lunches, and pay for one-night's lodging at the group contracted rate of $189 at the Westin Charlotte for those attending the Doctoral Consortium. If two students share a room, the Section will cover two nights' accommodation (i.e., one night for each participant). In the latter case, both students' names must appear on the hotel registration to be eligible for reimbursement. Students will receive an expense reimbursement form at the conference, which they will return to AAA headquarters with their lodging receipt for reimbursement.
