Doctoral Studies Support Program for CPAs

The Chartered Professional Accountants of Ontario conducts a program of financial support for Chartered Professional Accountants pursuing doctoral studies, which will prepare them for a career in teaching and research in governance, strategy and risk management, performance management, assurance, finance, financial accounting or taxation in Ontario. The program was established in 1979, and provides up to $15,000 per year of coursework, to a maximum of 3 years, to assist a CPA while they are pursuing their PhD.

The program has the following objectives:

  • to help assure a continuing supply of qualified teachers in governance, strategy and risk management, performance measurement and reporting, assurance, finance, management decision making or taxation in Ontario universities;
  • to enhance the long-run research capabilities of the accounting profession; and
  • to encourage the development of accounting doctoral programs in Ontario and Canada.

Applications are available in the fall of each year. For further information please email us.

Upon completion of all obligations under the doctoral studies support program agreement, a candidate shall receive the designation, "Chartered Professional Accountants of Ontario Doctoral Fellow" (CPA Ontario Doctoral Fellow) and shall be entitled to cite the support program completed as "Chartered Professional Accountants of Ontario Doctoral Fellowship".
