We are pleased to announce that John D. Gallemore, a doctoral candidate in accounting, received a $25,000 grant in February from the Deloitte Foundation’s annual Doctoral Fellowships in Accounting program. Gallemore is one of 10 Ph.D. candidates chosen.
 
Given to top accounting doctoral students who will be pursuing academic careers upon graduation, the award supports the 2012 recipients’ final year of coursework and the subsequent year to complete their doctoral dissertation.

“Since all of the grantees pursue careers in academia, the program plays a crucial role in ensuring there is a pipeline of highly-skilled, qualified accounting faculty on campuses to educate our profession’s next generation of talent and leaders,” said Shaun Budnik, president of the Deloitte Foundation.

Gallemore also presented his research at The Oxford University Centre for Business Taxation’s first Doctoral Meeting in October 2011 and won the award for best research paper. The topic of the meeting was “Public Economics and the Firm.”

The Oxford University Centre for Business Taxation examines the approach to the taxation of business activities in the UK and evaluates the effects of the present structure of taxation on the business sector, the public finances, international competitiveness and the wider economy.
