Grant Eligibility and Restrictions


The program is intended to support research activities of those working (or matriculating) in an academic community, such as academic faculty, students, and research interns; or association management professionals, such as full-time employees and consultants. 

ASAE membership is not a condition of the award but is strongly encouraged. 

Funds will be issued to the employing entity (e.g., academic institution), not individuals, for direct costs only. 



Indirect costs are not allowed under this award program. Travel funds may only be included if directly related to the research activity. Award recipients will be required to submit an Interim and Final Report, and to present a summary of findings at the ASAE Annual Meeting or other appropriate ASAE-sponsored learning events when applicable.
