Mathew Joseph Emerging Scholar Award Winner

DocSIG is pleased to announce Jeffrey P. Boichuk, University of Houston, as the winner of the inaugural Mathew Joseph Emerging Scholar Award. This award honors a doctoral student scholar who displays exemplary scholarship and a bright future in the marketing discipline. “The collegiality in marketing academia never fails to amaze me; thank you, Dr. Joseph, for making this award possible. Also, I would be remiss if I did not acknowledge Drs. Bulent Menguc and Mike Ahearne, my masters and PhD supervisors, respectively. If I ever emerge, it will be because of them,” says Boichuk.

Dr. Mathew Joseph created this award to help a doctoral student receive credit and recognition for their work. He says, “I have been blessed in so many ways so I decided to give back in a small way. My goal is to slowly increase the cash award every year. Thanks for your [DocSIG] help in making this happen.”

The faculty panel also selected two honorable mention winners: Michelle Andrews, Temple University, and Silvia Bellezza, Harvard University.

Applications were evaluated by a panel of three marketing scholar judges. The award funding and plaque will be presented at the Doctoral and Newcomers’ Breakfast at Summer AMA in San Francisco. All are encouraged to attend the event for a great opportunity to network with longtime conference attendees and other doctoral students while enjoying a complimentary breakfast.

“DocSIG is pleased to be able to offer this opportunity to its members. We hope it can help support their research efforts and encourage them to continue to work hard in their doctoral programs,” says Alexa Fox, DocSIG Chair.

Please stay tuned to the DocSIG blog, Facebook, and Twitter for details on how to apply for the next Mathew Joseph Emerging Scholar Award. Again, congratulations to our winners!
