Application Deadline: 29 March 2024

Eligibility: Successful applicants for our doctoral student stipends will receive a complimentary registration to participate in AIB 2024, as well as a lodging allowance to stay at a designated conference hotel. These stipends are available for members who are full-time Ph.D. students at the time of the deadline of this application. Preference is given to those applicants who plan to attend a pre-conference consortium (especially the Sheth/AIB Doctoral Consortium) and/or have a paper accepted for presentation at the annual meeting.  The applications are competitive, and not all students who apply will receive a stipend.

Application: Applications for AIB 2024 doctoral student stipends will open when paper acceptance decisions for the conference as well as acceptances for the doctoral consortium are sent out.  The online application form will require students to provide:

  1. a one-page CV
  2. designate a doctoral/dissertation advisor who will email a “Statement of Support” to the AIB Secretariat.

The Statement of Support must be emailed to programs@aib.msu.edu by the application deadline in order for a student’s travel stipend request to be considered complete.

If you are planning on applying for the stipend, do not register for AIB 2024 until you have received a formal decision on your application. We expect to send decisions by 5 April 2024. The early registration deadline for the conference is 14 April 2024, but applicants who do not receive the stipend will be given an extended deadline to register at that early rate.
