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 Victoria University of Wellington.

The School of Accounting and Commercial Law 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.

Contributing to the Don Trow Endowment Fund

Your contribution to the Visiting Fellowships Endowment Fund will help to ensure that funds are available to enable the Visiting Fellowships programme to continue in perpetuity.
