The PCAOB provides searchable tools, publications, working papers, and white papers that may be of interest to academics in auditing and related fields. We also engage with academics through events and our Fellowship Program and, where appropriate, we publish data for use by academics and researchers.

Fellowship Program

The PCAOB maintains a Fellowship Program for interested academics. Fellows are integrated into staff projects so that the PCAOB leadership and staff can benefit from their perspectives. Fellows also interact with PCAOB staff in developing high quality publishable economic research on topics of direct relevance to the mission of the PCAOB. Research projects are developed by Fellows in consultation with the PCAOB leadership and staff.
