Deloitte (DTTL) and the International Association for Accounting Education and Research (IAAER) today announced the Deloitte IAAER Scholarship Programme, naming five associate professors from Brazil, Indonesia, Poland, Romania and South Africa as the programme’s inaugural scholars.

Mentors will be assigned to each scholar to support them as they increase their exposure to internationally recognised accounting scholars, best practices in accounting and business education and research, and a global peer network.

Ongoing mentorship is a critical element of the Deloitte IAAER Scholarship Programme and some well-known and highly accomplished accounting experts have volunteered their support. These include former member of the Financial Accounting Standards Board, Katherine Schipper (Duke University); former member of the International Accounting Standards Board, Mary Barth (Stanford University); Chika Saka (Kwansei Gakuin University); Sidney Gray (University of Sydney); and Ann Tarca (University of Western Australia).

The scholars, who must be a sitting lecturer, assistant, or associate professor holding a PhD (or comparable degree) in a faculty that teaches accounting, auditing, or financial reporting, are chosen for three years and attend IAAER co-sponsored conferences, workshops, and consortia as well as the IAAER World Congress.

In the long term, the programme aims at supporting better accounting education and improving the quality of financial reporting and auditing. The next round of scholarships will open in 2016, with applications considered in 2015.
