Here are just a few of the benefits of funding The PhD Project with $25,000 and above:

  • The opportunity to have your company's open positions distributed via email to more than 6,500 highly qualified minority individuals who attended one of our annual invitational conferences but have not entered a doctoral program.

  • Direct exposure to virtually every minority faculty member and doctoral student in all of the business disciplines through increased interaction with these influential members of the academic community.

  • The opportunity to help shape the career choices of thousands of tomorrow's students.

  • Visibility at, and the opportunity to attend, the annual conferences of six different organizations of minority business professors, doctoral students, and potential doctoral students.

  • Enhanced corporate visibility and reputation through prominent identification and exposure on The PhD Project web site and all PhD Project display, advertising, promotional and publicity materials.
