PhD Program at Smith

Association for Doctoral Students

The mission of the Association of Doctoral Students (ADS) is to enhance the lives of PhD students at the Robert H. Smith School of Business.

ADS Dues

The ADS Board works hard to fund as many events as possible through campus sources such as Graduate Student Government (GSG) funds. We have also been fortunate to receive additional support from the PhD Office and the Dean's Office. Equally important is the contribution of members - PhD students - through our annual dues. Paying a modest $20 a year expresses your support for the community of doctoral students at the Smith School and provides a key source of funds for our monthly social events. If you have not yet paid your $20 ADS donation, please contact the treasurer. Thank you to those who have already paid!
