Scholarly Research in Association Management Grants Program

 

ASAE Foundation has a long-standing history of conducting and promoting research that advances knowledge in association management and nonprofit leadership. The Foundation would like to contribute to a complementary body of knowledge produced through research conducted by investigators within the academic community. To that end, the Foundation has established the Scholarly Research in Association Management Grants.

The Scholarly Research in Association Management Grants program provides awards of up to $7,500 each to meritorious proposals addressing research questions relevant to nonprofit membership and member-based associations.
