Government and Nonprofit Section Doctoral Activities

Government and Nonprofit Section Midyear Meeting Travel Grants

The GNP Section sponsors $1000 travel grants for the midyear GNP section meeting. The grants are intended to assist doctoral students interested in GNP research by defraying a portion of the costs of attending these meetings and to allow doctoral students interested in GNP topics to interact with GNP Section members.

In return for the grant, recipients will be expected to attend GNP workshops (at no cost, of course) where they will be introduced to Section members that have similar teaching and research interests.

Applicants should send a letter which describes their interest in governmental and nonprofit accounting teaching and research and provides support on why they feel they should receive the grant. Please include an e-mail address and phone number.
The deadlines for travel grant submissions is December 15.

Applicants generally will only be funded one time.
Please email your letter of application to:

Doctoral Program Liaison
Amanda W. Beck

Email submissions are preferred. If you have further questions you can contact Amanda at abeck@gsu.edu.

President's Letter

 

Dear GNP Colleagues,

Thank you for allowing me to serve as your president this year. I look forward to working with all of you and to seeing many of you at the semi-annual meetings. This section consists of members who are not only GNP scholars and educators but also some of the nicest people I know. I fondly remember presenting a paper at my first midyear meeting at Harvard University in 2005. Even though I was new to the group and only a doctoral student at the time, I was warmly welcomed by all. If you are new to the section, I hope that you attend our 2022 midyear meeting and enjoy the same experiences as me and many of our GNP colleagues when first attending our midyear meetings.

GASB Gil Crain Grant

GASB Gil Crain Memorial Research Grant

Since its formation in 1984, the Governmental Accounting Standards Board (GASB) has encouraged academics and other researchers to conduct studies that would be relevant to the GASB’s standards-setting activities. Over the past 30 years, such research efforts have resulted in publishing their research in research briefs, journal articles, and occasionally in GASB research reports.
