College of Business

Research Grants Award Program

A research stipend of $2,000 per College of Business (CB) author, with a maximum of $4,000 per Category A paper, will be awarded upon presentation to the Dean of:

  • an unconditional acceptance letter;
  • a copy of the accepted manuscript; and,
  • a proposal (1-2 pages) for future research project(s).

Subject to the $2,000 per author restriction, the distribution of funds among CB co-authors will be determined by the lead author. The author/coauthor may receive a maximum of two (2) research stipends in a given year. In the event that the total research grant money is exhausted prior to funding approved research-stipend applications, the unfunded applications will be given funding priority in the order received when moneys become available. The Research Grants Award Program will be subject to a continuous improvement process as represented by an annual review of the program.
