Support for the Doctoral Consortium from the KPMG Foundation is gratefully acknowledged.


The thirteenth annual KPMG/ATA Tax Doctoral Consortium will be held on Thursday, February 16, 2017 before the ATA midyear meeting in Phoenix, AZ. 

The goal of the consortium is to help prospective new tax faculty make the right choices in the early stages of their careers so that they become successful scholars.  While the program is designed to meet the needs of doctoral students with an interest in tax that are in the middle stages of their doctoral program, we will consider applications from doctoral students at all levels.  A low student-faculty ratio will provide an opportunity for doctoral students to meet and learn from successful tax faculty in both small group sessions and on an individual basis. 

The full program will be posted on the ATA website when it becomes available.  Some funding will be available to cover travel costs, including travel support from the ATA Memorial Fund in honor of Chris Bauman and Marty Escoffier. Please also note that any student who has previously attended two times or more will be asked to pay an additional fee of $150. The application deadline is November 11, 2016. 

Please let doctoral students at your institution know about the 2017 KPMG/ATA Tax Doctoral Consortium.  Questions about the consortium can be directed to Danielle Green at  You can find a link to the Consortium Application Form here.
