Margit F. Schoenfeld and
Hanns Martin W. Schoenfeld Scholarship
in Accounting History
The Academy of Accounting Historians invites applications for the 2009
Margit F. Schoenfeld and Hanns Martin W. Schoenfeld Scholarship in
Accounting History. The purpose of the scholarship is to encourage and
support research on the history of accounting by doctoral students and
recently appointed accounting faculty. The scholarship was initiated by
the generous gift of Dr. Hanns Martin Schoenfeld and the late Dr. Mar-git
Schoenfeld in recognition of their belief in the importance of histori-cal
scholarship to accounting education and research. In 2009 an award
of $3,000 is available to support research on a doctoral dissertation, or
develop publications proceeding therefrom by a recent PhD graduate.
Qualifying research topics should address the history of accounting.
Projects of an international nature and those pursued by scholars whose
first language is not English are particularly invited. The recipient(s) of
the scholarship will be determined by the Schoenfeld Award Commit-tee,
comprising the President of the Academy of Accounting Historians
(Chair), the editor of The Accounting Historians Journal and Dr Hanns
Martin W. Schoenfeld. The Committee has the capacity to share the
award equally between two worthy candidates or to make no award in
any one year. Applicants must be currently enrolled for a PhD by re-search,
or have completed a PhD by research within the last five years.
Applicants should submit a full curriculum vitae and a statement
(containing a maximum of 1,000 words) which discusses the doctoral
research undertaken on the history of accounting, the stage reached and
how the award would prove beneficial to the applicant. A short state-ment
from a supervisor should also be submitted in the case of appli-cants
currently enrolled for a PhD.
Applications should be submitted to: Cheryl S. McWatters, President,
Academy of Accounting Historians, Alberta School of Business, Uni-versity
of Alberta, Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, T6G 2R6. Email:
Cheryl.McWatters@ualberta.ca. The closing date for the receipt of ap-plications
is 31 August 2009.
