Don Trow Visiting Fellowship
The Don Trow Visiting Fellowship funds short-term visiting researchers who contribute to the Centre’s high-quality research in the field of accounting.
The purpose of the Don Trow Visiting Fellowships is to foster and develop accounting research of the highest quality at Te Herenga Waka—Victoria University of Wellington.
The Wellington School of Business and Government strives to become New Zealand's premier centre for accounting research, conducting research of benefit to the local, national and international business, and professional communities.
The Visiting Fellowship scheme is designed to ensure that funds are available to secure a continuing (annual) flow of short-term visiting researchers of excellent standing who will stimulate new research initiatives, work with staff members on their existing research projects, and engage/interact with the wider business and professional communities.
Giving to the Don Trow Endowment Fund
The Fund was established to honour Professor Don Trow’s contribution to Te Herenga Waka—Victoria University of Wellington. It recognises his wide-ranging achievements and the esteem in which he was held by his colleagues, students and more broadly by the School of Accounting and Commercial Law.
The Visiting Fellowships programme aims to develop accounting research within the school by ensuring a regular flow of visiting accounting researchers who will inspire new initiatives, work alongside staff on their existing projects and stimulate networking with the broader business and professional communities. The Visiting Fellow also links to the business and public sector communities by presenting public seminars on recent developments in research on and practice of accounting.
With your support, we can increase the amount of research and activity in the School of Accounting and Commercial Law resulting in improved undergraduate and postgraduate teaching and courses, and ultimately leading to higher calibre accounting graduates.
Your gift to the Don Trow Endowment Fund can help to ensure that funds are available to allow the Visiting Fellowship programme to continue in perpetuity.
