Doctoral Research Assistantships

The Center for Scholarship Excellence and the School of Advanced Studies at University of Phoenix are pleased to offer an assistantship program. The School of Advanced Studies Research Assistantship is intended to provide financial support to doctoral candidates who seek to present and publish research through scholarly channels.

Through this assistantship program, three (3) $ 5,000 assistantships will be offered. Each assistantship will require a current doctoral candidate to present their research at a national or international conference and/or publish in a peer-reviewed, refereed journal.

In addition, recipients will be expected to lead and facilitate at least two (2) events centered on their research process, method/methodology, publishing, or other related topic (for example: PhoenixConnect sessions, research blogging, face-to-face workshops). Events will be subject to approval by the central administration and campus staff.
