Fonnesbechs PHD Prize 2017


This prize is awarded again in 2017 and totals DKK 140.000. It is awarded to a PHD scholar at CBS to co-finance a 4th year of PHD studies. CBS will co-finance up to an amount of a yearly pay of a PHD scholar.


The prize is awarded in the beginning of the year but is officially presented during the yearly CBS Prize winners’ reception. The prize can therefore be used by the PHD scholar as soon as the regular scholarship is finished.


Criteria for award of the prize

The prize will be awarded a PHD student that:

- studies at CBS

- whom during his/hers PHD scholarship has delivered extraordinary research which is estimated to be on an international top level

- has the possibility, with the effort of this 4th year of PHD studies, to get hired by an internationally renowned university or business school and thereby contribute to showing that the research which is done at CBS has international impact and that the CBS’ Business-in-Society strategy will be internationally renowned.


Nomination and election

Potential candidates will be identified by the Dean’s office Research based on references from the Directors of the PHD schools. The Leadership team will already in February decide upon the winner.
