Pay It Forward Campaign

The Diversity Section of the American Accounting Association is currently holding its "Pay It Forward"campaign. This campaign supports our PhD student travel scholarship initiative. Our section has been able to sponsor at least two, and in our recent years up to five PhD students with a travel scholarship to our midyear conference with the donations from key members and our partner, University of Louisville.

For the 2018 midyear conference, donations to the Pay It Forward fund will support at least two travel scholarships in honor of Dr. Kathryn Epps. We invite each Diversity Section member to donate a minimum of $25 to support our future faculty members with travel scholarships.

   •You can donate to either the Pay It Forward Fund or the Michael Clement and Mark Dawkins Scholarship Fund. 
   •All donations regardless of the fund will support our student travel scholarships.
