Fetzer Institute Announces MSR Scholarships for Graduate Students and New Faculty Fetzer Institute is a private foundation created by John E. Fetzer in 1962 with a vision of a transformed world, powered by love, in which all people can flourish. Their mission is « To help build the spiritual foundation for a loving world. » One of their strategic initiatives is to partner with higher education organizations that are in alignment with this vision and mission. The Management, Spirituality and Religion (MSR) Interest Group at the Academy of Management is a higher education professional association that is very much in alignment. The MSR domain statement states in part, « MSR is devoted to defining the relevance and impact of spirituality and religion in management, organizations and society. » Because of this shared mission and vision, Fetzer Institute is generously offering 20 scholarships to graduate students and new faculty to support their attendance at the 2019 MSR program and related events at the Academy of Management in Boston. Each scholarship is $2,500 in support of graduate students and new faculty who otherwise would not have university support or other means of attending the annual conference. This support of new scholars in the MSR field will be a significant infusion of wonderful scholarly and spiritual energy into the MSR community. Their attendance will bring a critical mass of new thinking and a high degree of passion to the MSR field and to the MSR events at the Academy of Management annual meeting. It will also provide a significant level of credibility for their work in their home institutions and will encourage them to continue to pursue this cutting-edge work in a domain that is not always supported by the mainstream in the field of management. Recipients of this scholarship will be assigned an MSR Mentor who will provide support and guidance during the 2019 Academy of Management conference.
