Application and Guidelines

Each year, our Academic Resources Department solicits proposals for research funding on any topic related to project, program or portfolio management.

Proposed research must have direct application to some aspect of the project management body of knowledge or its practice.

Awards up to US$50,000 are granted to selected recipients both within and outside the field of project management, including management, organizational psychology, sociology, education, linguistics and others. We encourage proposals on research involving multi-disciplinary teams of investigators or teams consisting of academics and practitioners who bring new ways of thinking and related bodies of literature to the field.
