The eleventh annual KPMG/ATA Tax Doctoral Consortium will be held on Thursday, February 26, 2015, before the ATA midyear meeting in Washington, D.C.

The goal of the Consortium is for doctoral students to meet and interact with ATA members and to learn about skills, strategies, and choices that will help them become successful scholars. The program is designed to meet the needs of students with an interest in tax and who are in the middle stages of their doctoral program. However, applications from doctoral students at any level of their program, or who are undecided about taxation as a focus of their teaching and research, will be considered. A low student-faculty ratio provides an opportunity for students to meet and learn from successful tax faculty in both small group sessions and on an individual basis.

KPMG and the ATA will provide lodging for both Wednesday, February 25 and Thursday, February 26, and all Consortium meals on Thursday. Students who have already attended the consortium twice will be asked to pay $150 to cover meal costs. The full program will be posted when it becomes available.

Students interested in attending should send the completed application form as directed on the form. The deadline for the Doctoral Consortium is Friday, November 14, 2014. Applicants will be notified of acceptance to the consortium by Friday December 5, 2014. Students wishing to attend the ATA Midyear Meeting must separately register for the Midyear Meeting and the Consortium.

Additionally, some funding will be available to cover travel costs, including travel support from E&Y and the ATA Memorial Fund in honor of Chris Bauman, Marty Escoffier, and Jack Kramer. Students receiving official invitations to the Consortium who wish to apply for travel funding are invited to apply for E&Y travel grants by January 9, 2015, and applicants will be notified by February 6, 2015.

Please let doctoral students at your institution know about the opportunity to attend the 2015 KPMG/ATA Tax Doctoral Consortium and encourage them to apply. Questions about the consortium can be directed to Petro (Pete) Lisowsky at:
