EIBA Fellows Research Award

In 2005, the EIBA Fellows announced the launch of a new EIBA Fellows Research Award for a Promising Young Scholar in International Business. The winner of the award receives €15,000 (earmarked for living expenses). The purpose of this award is to help broaden the research programme of promising young scholars in the International Business field, to widen their network of research contacts by opening new research collaborations at an early stage of their academic careers, and to enhance the formation of international research exchange arrangements amongst international business scholars. The prize is awarded for conducting original research in a new host institution, as opposed to the completion of any outstanding coursework requirements. Doctoral students who are officially registered as working on an international business topic, or those who successfully defended such theses within the previous three years, are eligible to apply. The award is intended as a contribution towards living expenses, and the money is transferred directly to the award recipient.

NOTE: Since 2009, numerous efforts to find sponsors for this important award have not been successful; therefore, the EIBA Fellows Research Award has been discontinued until further notice. Should you happen to know of a potential sponsor or have some possible leads in this regard, kindly contact the Dean of EIBA Fellows via the EIBA Secretariat: eiba@eiasm.be.
