Deloitte Foundation Doctoral Fellowship Program

Supporting future accounting faculty

Since 1956, this annual program has provided financial support to help future accounting faculty complete their studies while helping strengthen the pipeline of accounting professors who will teach thousands of students over the length of their careers.

Through the annual Deloitte Foundation Doctoral Fellowship program, the Deloitte Foundation awards $25,000 grants to 10 top accounting Ph.D.s. candidates across the U.S. Given to students who plan to pursue academic careers upon graduation, the award is intended to help cover expenses during recipients’ final year of coursework and the subsequent year to complete their doctoral dissertation.

Each year, accounting doctoral students from more than 100 universities are invited to apply for the fellowship. A selection committee composed of eminent accounting educators chose this year’s recipients who were nominated by accounting faculty of their school. Since inception, the program has supported nearly 1,200 Ph.D.s to help increase the pipeline of faculty who are preparing the next generation of business leaders.

The 2024 recipients and the institutions they attend are:

  • Karla Marcela Aguilar Alas, Rice University
  • Brett Campbell, Yale University
  • Joseph Croom, University of Washington
  • Chuck Downing, Massachusetts Institute of Technology
  • Christian Hutzler, University of Iowa
  • Andrew Jones, Indiana University
  • Andrew McKinley, University of Chicago
  • Tianshuo Shi, Harvard University
  • Enshuai Yu, Boston College
  • Kangkang Zhang, University of Connecticut

“The Foundation invests in student, educator, and school success to help prepare the next generation for the jobs of tomorrow and Ph.D. candidates are an important part of our strategy,” said Erin Scanlon, Deloitte Foundation president. Supporting the selected Ph.D. candidates in the final phase of their academic studies is one way the Foundation can help to strengthen the pipeline of accounting professors who are helping to prepare students for the future of work.”
