If you are selected to attend the conference you will be required to pay a $200 registration fee which will be processed via credit card during the registration process. Your investment of the $200 registration fee is non-refundable. If you enter a full-time, AACSB accredited business doctoral program within three years of attending the conference, this fee will be reimbursed.
All travel and conference expenses — valued at $1,500 per invited attendee for hotel, meals, materials and transportation to Chicago (domestic air travel only)– will be paid by The PhD Project. This includes a hotel room to be shared with another participant for the two nights during the conference. Participants requesting a single room will be responsible for full payment of the hotel accommodations. Any hotel accommodations beyond the two nights will be the responsibility of the participant.
If it has been 5 years or more since you last attended a PhD Project Conference, and would like to attend again, you may submit an application to be reviewed. However, if you are selected to attend, we would only cover your meals. You will be required to pay the registration and hotel/travel costs on your own.
