Doctoral study of tax policy
Start your Ph.D. in Accounting with a focus on tax research
The Hoops Institute of Taxation Research and Policy and the Carson College of Business Department of Accounting in Pullman invite exceptionally qualified individuals to apply for admission to the Ph.D. program in accounting to study tax policy. An accepted candidate will be eligible to apply for both a Hoops Graduate Fellowship in Accounting and a graduate assistantship from the Carson College of Business and Washington State University.
Qualified candidates will demonstrate previous tax education, multiple years of professional tax experience, and an interest in pursuing a career of academic tax research.
About the fellowship and assistantship
A WSU Carson College graduate assistantship includes a tuition waiver and a stipend, and this will be supplemented with special support to be provided by the endowment of the Howard D. and B. Phyllis Hoops Graduate Fellowships in Accounting.
Total annual compensation during the course of a typical four-year Ph.D. program will likely be in the $25,000-$30,000 range, assuming consistent degree progress and satisfactory work required by the terms of the assistantship (approximately 20 hours per week).
Provide a detailed statement concerning your interest in and commitment toward pursuing an academic career focused on the study of tax issues. Be sure to explore requirements for admission to the Ph.D. program.
