From website: "Launched in 2008, the ADS program provides funding for up to 30 individuals each year, with a focus on those currently working in public accounting, to help them make a permanent transition to teaching and research in accounting at the university level. The funding supports application to doctoral programs in accounting and also provides an annual stipend of $30,000 up to four years of enrollment. Priority is given to those committed to teaching and research in audit and tax - the areas of greatest need. "
"Applicants to the program must be U.S. citizens and have three years of recent meaningful public accounting experience in auditing or tax. A full description of the program, complete eligibility requirements, application procedures and a current list of participating universities are available on line at www.adsphd.org.
