The Liam Glynn Travel Scholarship

The Frontiers in Service Conference is the world’s leading annual conference on service research. Every year doctoral students and new faculty are invited to participate in the AMA SERVSIG Doctoral Consortium, which precedes the conference. The Consortium is designed to offer a valuable opportunity to doctoral students and new faculty to engage with the leading service scholars, get feedback on research, network and learn from peers. The Center for Services Leadership provides funding for The Liam Glynn Travel Scholarship to help selected emerging service scholars to attend the Consortium and the Frontiers in Service Conference.
