The Entrepreneurship Division warmly invites applications to its annual consortium for doctoral students. Given that this year's AOM Conference is being held virtually, the Doctoral Consortium will follow suit, allowing students from across the world to participate more easily!
Designed to launch doctoral students into their research career, the Consortium brings together young scholars and experienced faculty to discuss opportunities for advancing academic understanding of entrepreneurship. As such, the Doctoral Consortium's primary objective is to help prepare students for a successful career as a researcher/professor in academic institutions of higher education.
This year's program will include discussions on the challenges of pursuing an academic career, the publication process, and a host of other relevant topics. Furthermore, students will have the opportunity to receive constructive feedback about a research article on which they are currently working. The final schedule will be determined soon, but the Consortium is planned to run from 8:30am-12noon (Eastern Standard Time) on July 26, July 28, and July 30, 2021. The virtual Consortium will cover all three days and have different sessions on each of these three separate days. Due to the generous commitment of time from senior scholars to this event, we expect admitted applicants to attend the ENTIRE program (all sessions on every day).
The Consortium is open to doctoral students who have completed approximately two to three years of their PhD program (students in earlier stages of their programs are encouraged to wait until they reach this phase). The ideal candidate is a research-oriented doctoral student who has finished coursework and is currently engaged in preparing a dissertation focused on entrepreneurship.
The Entrepreneurship Division has a limited number of stipends available to support eligible doctoral students. These stipends will cover admission to the AoM Conference. The Division has elected to award these stipends strictly on a need basis. Please see the relevant requirements in the application procedures below.

All applications must be received by Friday, April 30, 2021. Because we have historically received a large number of applications and capacities are limited, incomplete and late applications will not be considered. No exceptions will be made.
Consortium positions will be allocated by a committee based on an inclusive evaluation of all application materials. Questions should be sent to the doctoral consortium co-chairs, Marilyn Uy (email@example.com) and Charles Murnieks (firstname.lastname@example.org).
