Marketing Science Institute (MSI), Doctoral Dissertation Proposal Competition

Doctoral Candidates in Marketing and Related Fields

Deadline: July 31

MSI will grant up to five awards of $5,000 each in this annual competition, named in honor of former MSI president Alden G. Clayton. The competition is open to doctoral candidates in marketing and related fields (e.g., management, strategy, organizational behavior, consumer psychology, economics, etc.). The dissertation must be no more than fifty percent completed at the time of submission. Proposals will be judged on importance and potential contribution of the subject to business and academia; quality of conceptual development; feasibility and appropriateness of methodology; fit of research with MSI priorities; and creativity. Design aspects will play a particularly important role in the evaluation process.

Instructions on eligibility and how to enter the competition may be found on the MSI website ( http://www.msi.org ), or by contacting MSI's Research Director as noted below.
