The consortium is designed to allow for high levels of faculty-student interaction. In order to maintain a high faculty/student ratio, space for this consortium remains limited. Interested students must be nominated by their schools and must be OMT members (either already or by joining now).
Doctoral programs should limit their nominations to one applicant. Universities with multiple departments seeking to send students should coordinate their nominations. Preference will be given to those students who have progressed to the dissertation stage and are either on, or considering being on, the job market in the coming year.
Several waivers of the AOM conference’s registration fees and stipends are available to support students who are interested in applying but lack budget/resources from their schools or otherwise. The nomination deadline again is May 15, 2022.
Nominations should be submitted by the department representative who nominates the student via the following online form only (no email nominations, please): https://bostonu.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_3mb9XGJh3CCnpQ2
As specified in the online form, nominations should include basic information about the nominated student (name, e-mail address and university affiliation) as well as: (1) a confirmation that the student is (or will become) a member of the OMT division; and (2) a confirmation that the student will complete doctoral coursework and comprehensive exams (or equivalent) by August 1, 2022.
In addition, the following three supporting documents should be uploaded via the online form:
- A brief letter from a faculty member providing a general appraisal of the nominee, including an assessment of the nominee’s progress toward a dissertation defense, expected defense date, and subject of dissertation;
- The nominee’s CV (including contact information, research and teaching interests, publications, and/or working papers);
- A 3-5 pages summary of a research project on which the nominee would like to receive feedback.
Additional information about the OMT Doctoral Consortium will be available on the OMT website closer to the date of the event.
