Academy of Marketing Research Funding 2022

Closing date for applications is noon (GMT) on 3 May 2022.

The Academy of Marketing Research Sub-Committee will support research capacity development within the Academy through the 2022 Academy of Marketing Research Initiative Funding scheme. The Committee invites members of the Academy of Marketing to submit research proposals for funding of up to £5,000 on any marketing topic. The Academy will make up to 5 awards, 2 of which will be reserved for Early Career Researchers. Research proposals can cover any aspect of research in the broad area of marketing. The proposed work should be an original project and not be a part of any ongoing research. It should aim to contribute to theory and/or practice in marketing.

All applications must meet the requirements given in the funding documentation.

It is a condition of the funding that the research be completed in time for presentation at the July 2023 Academy of Marketing Annual Conference. An amount equal to the conference fee for one person from each successful application will be provided for attendance at the 2023 Academy of Marketing Annual Conference (other expenses for conference attendance will need to be met by the attendee). This amount will be in addition to the funds requested in the research proposal. Successful applicants must submit a short (maximum 4000 words) final report to the Chair of the Academy of Marketing Research Sub-Committee by Monday 2 October 2023.

Each proposal will be independently assessed by two reviewers, at least one of whom is a subject specialist. The final selection of proposals to be funded will be made by the members of the AM Research Sub-Committee. Successful applicants for the funding will be announced at the Academy of Marketing Conference in July 2022.
