The Udayan Rege Best Dissertation Award

Deadline for Submission: March 1, 2016

ASAC is pleased to announce the 'Udayan Rege Best Dissertation Award'. This award is given biannually for the best Canadian doctoral dissertation in the administrative sciences. The award consists of a plaque and a cash prize of $1000 (Cdn.).

The best dissertation award is given in memory of the late Dr. Udayan Rege, a professor of finance at Brock University and a former President of ASAC. It is made possible by a generous donation from Mrs. Kanchan Rege to honour her late husband's contributions to ASAC and its members.

The award is administered by the ASAC Awards Chair and conferred at the ASAC Annual Conference, every even numbered year beginning with 2002. Details of submission and rules for entering follow.

Objectives

  • To promote and recognize excellence in Canadian Ph.D. programs in Administrative Sciences
  • To provide more visibility to individuals who have completed a doctoral program in Administrative Sciences in a Canadian university.
Eligibility

Any person who successfully defended a dissertation between Aug. 1, 2013 and July 31, 2015 is eligible if:

  • The dissertation was a requirement for obtaining a doctorate from a Canadian business school
  • The dissertation is in a field covered by at least one of the divisions or special interest groups in ASAC.
Application Procedure
  1. Interested individuals are required to prepare a summary of their dissertation for initial submission. This summary should not exceed 25 double-spaces pages and should normally include the abstract, conceptual and theoretical background, methodology, results, conclusions, references, and any tables or figures. The covering letter should indicate the exact date the dissertation was defended, the institution which awarded the Ph.D. degree, and the names and affiliations of the doctoral committee. The covering letter should also indicate which ASAC division the subject of the dissertation is most appropriate to.
     
  2. Send four hard copies of the dissertation summary to the ASAC Awards Chair:
    Dr. Andrew Templer (c/o Sue Skrobiak)
    Odette School of Business
    University of Windsor

  3. Submissions must be received by the Awards Chair by March 1, 2016 in order to be eligible; late submissions will not be accepted. 
    Note: Submissions by fax or email are NOT acceptable.
     
  4. Each summary will be evaluated by independent reviewers selected by the ASAC Awards Chair, to identify three finalists. Each finalist will then be required to submit four copies of the complete dissertation. These will then be submitted to a separate set of reviewers for the selection of the award winner. If the final set of reviewers cannot reach a decision, the final decision will be made the ASAC Awards Chair.
     
  5. The 2016 award will be presented at the Annual ASAC conference.
