Graduate Management Admission Council®
Deadline for submission: October 9, 2009
The Graduate Management Admission Council® seeks research proposal submissions to the Management Education Research Institute Grant and Fellowship Programs—
The Grants Program is designed to support research projects about graduate management education learning, development, and outcomes. Grants up to $100,000 each are funded for one to three year periods.
The Faculty Fellowships Program is designed to support innovative and thought-provoking research from management education leaders. The Institute offers year-long $50,000 faculty fellowships for research at the fellows' home institutions.
The Doctoral Student Fellowships Program is designed to support doctoral students and beginning faculty to help them in their careers and support the field of management education. The Institute offers year-long $20,000 doctoral student fellowships for research at the fellows' home institutions.
Past recipients of grants and fellowships have used the funds to study a variety of topics, including factors that influence new MBAs to switch careers, the relationship between work experience and performance in business school, and factors that influence career success among women with MBAs.
Last year seven projects were awarded a total of more than $369,000 in funding for 2009 by the Institute. The winning proposals were selected from among 56 applications rigorously reviewed by a committee of business school faculty.
