The Center sponsors initiatives to support faculty and PhD students.

Seed grants for faculty

The Centre for Strategy Studies in Organizations (CSSO) supports the execution and dissemination of high-quality research in strategy and organization studies. To this end, the CSSO invites area members to apply for small research grants to a maximum of $5,000 each. Priority will be given to researchers who intend to use the funds to initiate new research projects. The grants are primarily intended to fund data acquisition and research assistants. Travel, meals, and computers are excluded. All expenses must conform to University policies.

If you wish to apply for a grant, please submit a document of one page in length that briefly describes how you would use the funds, including budget.

Deadline: None. Applications are processed on a rolling basis.
