The Sheth foundation supported my doctoral dissertation, which was a costly project. I am grateful for the financial support I received.

The foundation values and rewards work that is relevant not only to practitioners or academics, but also has implications for public policy.

Travel Stipend

The Sheth Foundation was instrumental in providing me with an opportunity during my PhD program to present my research and network with other researchers by funding travel to a major academic international conference. It allowed me to make contacts and learn about current research going on in the field of marketing, as well as receive valuable feedback to my own research.

I cannot thank you enough for your generosity and for the valuable opportunities you provide to students like myself to further learning and excellence in our field. Your generous scholarship has lightened my financial burden, allowing me to focus on my research, and your kindness has inspired me to pay the debt forward and give back to the community in the near future. Thank you so much again.

ACR Dissertation Award

I am extremely grateful to the Sheth Foundation for their financial support of my research area–low literate consumers. I was blessed to receive multiple dissertation grants sponsored in part by the Sheth Foundation. These grants helped me collect depth interviews with adults who possess limited literacy skills. Because the Sheth Foundation believed in the potential value of my work, I gained confidence and committed myself to working in a previously unexplored area. The dissertation resulted in a Robert Ferber Award-winning article published in the Journal of Consumer Research…a huge accomplishment that would not have materialized without the support (both financial and conceptual feedback) of the Sheth Foundation and its partners. Thank you from the bottom of my heart….
