Every year the Joseph M. Juran Center for Research in Supply Chain, Operations, and Quality selects
and honors doctoral candidates whose research shows the most promise in
broadening and fueling practices and thinking in the area of quality in
their chosen fields.
The purpose of the Juran Fellowship program is to support doctoral thesis research and to recognize doctoral students who show potential to make substantial career contributions to the field of leadership in quality. Applicants are typically in the third or fourth year of their doctoral programs.
Since 1998, the Juran Research Center has awarded more than 50 Juran Fellowships. Many of those Fellows have gone on to teach at leading research universities, including the University of Minnesota, University of Michigan, University of Illinois, The Pennsylvania State University and Clemson.
