The program is intended to primarily fund research conducted by investigators in the academic community and academic practitioner (association management professionals) collaborations.

The program will provide multiple awards of up to $7,500 each to proposals that address research questions relevant to nonprofit members and member-based associations. Each award is for one year starting in August 2015.

“The new grants will enable the higher education community to expand its body of knowledge around association management and increase collaboration between academics and practitioners in the association community,” said ASAE Executive Vice President and ASAE Foundation President Susan Robertson, CAE. “The Foundation strives to be a facilitator in helping to create and advance information that will impact our members and our global society.”  

Submissions will be evaluated through a peer-review process and all post-secondary investigators are encouraged to apply. Award recipients will submit an interim and final report, and they will be invited to present findings at the ASAE Annual Meeting & Exposition or another appropriate ASAE-sponsored learning event.
