The grant applications are due by March 31 and preference will be given to those who align closely to the emerging capabilities for the future (Data and analytics, customer engagement models, digital and social platforms, operations, supply chain management, project and process management, human resources, employee engagement, change management and leadership) and/or business fundamentals (marketing, management, finance, economics, real estate, leadership and organizational development, Operations, Supply Chain, Data Management, entrepreneurship, and international business).

The Summer Research Grant application process is now underway! The Business Council (who co-funds these grants) have made some changes this year to allow more time for candidates to submit applications and also to align with the curriculum advancement initiative.

As in past years, the presentations to the committee will be 5-10 minutes each and this year will be held on April 19. Please use this Presentation Template for the Faculty Grant Review Committee presentations. Summer grants are awarded by the committee by May 1. If you have any questions about the process, please reach out to Janeth Merkle.
