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 Frontiers in Service conference.


The ASU Center for Services Leadership is a research center within the W. P. Carey School of Business at Arizona State University. Founded in 1985 to pioneer the study of services, the Center for Services Leadership has established itself as a globally recognized authority on how to compete strategically through the profitable use of services.

SERVSIG and the Arizona State University’s Center for Services Leadership give emerging service scholars the opportunity to attend the Services Doctoral Consortium and the Frontiers in Services Conference with financial assistance. A committee of AMA SERVSIG members will select the award recipients.

Participants can apply for the Liam Glynn Travel Scholarship. All submissions should be submitted via email by May 10, 2023, and it should include the following information:
