"Knowledge is of two kinds. We know a subject ourselves, or we know where we can find information upon it."
         --Samuel Johnson

The PhD Project is not a doctoral program in itself, rather a clearinghouse for the knowledge potential students of business doctoral programs will need. Think of us as your "Ph.D. Guidance Counselor." Click here to learn What a PhD degree really is.

We welcome interested African-Americans, Hispanic-Americans and Native Americans to learn more about our Annual Conference, which provides rare networking opportunities with doctoral granting institutions and members of the business academic community. The November Conference is by invitation only. To be considered for an invitation to attend the conference, you must first complete and submit an application. Your application will be reviewed by a team of doctoral program directors and if you are invited to the conference, you will be required to pay a $200 registration fee which can be processed via credit card during the registration process. All travel and conferences expenses will paid by The PhD Project.

The PhD Project also provides a link to foundations, scholarships, and other funding opportunities, as well as peer support for the duration of your studies. In 1994, The PhD Project created peer associations to sustain a high level of commitment and a sense of connection among minority business doctoral students.There are now five minority doctoral students associations covering all the major areas of business education: Accounting, Finance, Information Systems, Management, and Marketing.
