We would like to thank the Grant Thornton LLP for its generous support in sponsoring the 2016 FARS Midyear Meeting.



This year the Financial Accounting and Reporting Section (FARS) of the American Accounting Association is pleased to announce that we will offer a limited number of travel grants to junior accounting faculty to help defray the costs of attendance at the 2016 midyear meeting in Newport Beach, CA. 

We will award up to three research grants to faculty for whom attendance is meant primarily to boost the attendee’s research productivity and enhance the attendee’s visibility in the FARS research community.  We will award up to three teaching grants to faculty for whom attendance is meant primarily to improve the attendee’s ability to disseminate cutting-edge research findings in the classroom.

The faculty member must have received his/her Ph.D. within the last six years, be a member of FARS, and have limited discretionary funds at their institution to attend conferences. The scholarship recipient must be able to attend the entire conference to be eligible for reimbursement.

The award covers the cost of an economy class round trip airfare from the recipient’s home city to Newport Beach (either John Wayne Airport-Orange County SNA or Long Beach Airport LGB) (maximum of $600) and two nights at the conference hotel.  The award also includes waiver of the meeting registration fee (including luncheon tickets).

Current eligible FARS members must complete an application form available HERE.

Applications are due by November 6, 2015. Faculty who receive grants will be notified by November 20, 2015.
