Clayton Dissertation Proposal Competition

The Alden G. Clayton competition recognizes the best doctoral dissertation proposals on important marketing subjects. This annual competition is named in honor of former MSI president Alden G. Clayton, who retired in 1986 after more than a decade of leadership at the Institute.

Each year, MSI grants up to five awards of $5,000 each for the best proposals. Honorable mention awards may also be granted. All recipients are given the opportunity to develop their research under the aegis of MSI.

The deadline for submission is August 8, 2016.
