The Livery and the ICAEW both recognise the importance of the contribution that Institute members can make to the academic world, both in teaching and research. To encourage and support ICAEW-qualified Chartered Accountants in pursuing an academic career, our Charity provides bursaries to members undertaking a PhD or other Doctoral studies in accounting-related topics.
These annual bursaries are typically set at about £5,000 and are renewable for a period of up to four years, subject to satisfactory annual progress reports from the students’ supervisors. Our annual budget of £40,000 will thus support eight students. Bursaries are normally awarded annually in October.
