Ross School Doctoral Student Receives $25,000 Grant

2/14/2006 --

Chad Larson is one of 10 recipients of the Deloitte Doctoral Fellowship.

ANN ARBOR, Mich.—Chad Larson, a Ph.D. student at the Stephen M. Ross School of Business at the University of Michigan, recently received one of 10 fellowship grants from the Deloitte Foundation, a not-for-profit arm of Deloitte & Touche.

The grants were awarded to doctoral students of accounting who were nominated by their university's faculty and chosen by an independent selection committee composed of three accounting educators.

"This is one of the Deloitte Foundation's flagship programs to support accounting education," said Mark Chain, president of the foundation. "We're proud to provide financial support for a program that has given so many exceptional students the resources to complete their doctoral degrees in accounting and pursue careers in teaching and accounting research."

The Deloitte Foundation supports teaching, research and curriculum innovation in accounting, business and related fields within the United States. The program invites applications from nearly 100 universities.

Each of the 2006 fellows will receive $5,000 during his or her final year of course work and $20,000 during the subsequent year of completing a dissertation.
