CAAA Grant for francophone PhD students

Submissions are now welcomed from francophone accounting PhD students to receive CAAA funding to attend the 2024 Association francophone de comptabilité journée doctorale and Annual Congress.

In 2021, findings from projects funded by the CAAA-Deloitte research commission were presented to the CAAA Board of Directors and representatives from Deloitte. Each research team presented findings and recommendations for CAAA action in support of junior faculty and graduate students. The CAAA established a fund of $10,000 for this support.

One of the CAAA's objectives is to increase networking opportunities for graduate students, a need also identified by the research projects. The CAAA is pleased to be able to fund the attendance of one graduate student to the journée doctoral and Annual Congress of the Association francophone de comptabilité.
