Travel Stipend

The travel stipends that Sheth Foundation provides to Ph.D. students to attend annual meeting of AIB are critical to their success. My students have benefited from this generous support over the years. Thank you.

Dear Dr. Sheth, I wanted to thank you once again for the impact you had on me at the PhD Project Conference a few days ago. Your words gave me hope and inspired me to continue to pursue my academic endeavors with effervescence. I do not know if you remember who I am (young lady with big curly hair), but I wanted to extend my deepest gratitude. May you and your family always be blessed.

Winter Marketing Camp

I wanted to let you know that I had a wonderful time to attend and give talk at Sheth Research Camp at U of Pittsburgh last week. That was an amazing experience, including interacting with UPitt’s marketing faculty and doctoral students for research ideas and life experience, chatting with other guest speakers and observing their talks, and simply enjoying the beautiful scene at the 7Spring Resort!

Thank you very much for your generous support to the research camp. Our discipline is so fortune to have you as a colleague and role model for us!

The Sheth Foundation allowed me to first interact with very high level and prominent faculty from around the globe. Second funding from the Sheth Foundation provided essential financial support during my doctoral program. Not many share my unique situation during graduate school, but I was the primary provider for a spouse and four young children and the financial assistance helped me complete my program on schedule and without delay that was common for my peers.

Doctoral Consortium Award

I received the award at an early stage in my career. When I received it I was already located at Bilkent University in Turkey, my hometown. The award had been a source of pride for me and for my institution. I am happy to receive it, however, I did not experience any specific contribution of the award to my career.

Travel Stipend

I am a doctoral student and a second-time recipient of a Sheth Foundation’s travel stipend to attend the AIB conference in Rio. I thought I would send you a word of appreciation to thank you very much for your generosity and dedication to the community in general and to the upcoming scholars in particular. I am sure many of us would simply not be able to attend these conferences without your kind support. For having discussed this with my fellows, I know you are definitely a role model who inspires us as future scholars.

ACR Dissertation Award

The Sheth Foundation ACR cross-cultural dissertation award has greatly benefited my research career. This award not only provided the funding that helped me to complete my dissertation on time, but also inspired me to continue with my research agenda on cross-cultural consumer behavior. This is particularly important given the multi-disciplinary nature of this field, which introduces additional challenges for researchers in the area.

Being a winner of the Sheth Foundation Dissertation Award (2006) has always been a great honor to me, and has a profound… impact on me throughout these years. It always inspires me to work hard, pursue excellence and excel in academic performance.

AIB Doctoral Student Consortium

I am a doctoral student from South Korea. I participated at 2016 AIB Doctoral Consortium in New Orleans. I very much enjoyed the opportunity to be in the consortium and learned many things. I was awarded with travel stipend which helped me a lot for financing my travel expense. I would like to say thank you to the Sheth Foundation for financing AIB doctoral student consortium and for the travel stipend. The consortium helped me with developing my dissertation further and meeting scholars from many different countries as well as doctoral students from different countries. I also learned a lot from many different interactive sessions and presentation during the conference. I am truly grateful for the opportunity and support provided by the Sheth Foundation. Thank you!

ACR Dissertation Award

With the early support it provided, The Sheth Foundation was instrumental in helping fund my dissertation, which took me to India to study how foreign companies adapt to the Indian market. Not only did I manage to finish an interesting dissertation which won 3 awards, I also met my wife in India so the Sheth Foundation had a real impact on my life!
