About the Schemes:
 

Transitions 1 Research Grant Scheme

The Transitions 1 Research Grant Scheme is aimed at BAM members who are early in their career who hold a PhD and wish to develop an empirical research project that advances business and management scholarship and improves their research capacities. Proposals may be related to any subject area within BAM’s intellectual remit.

Proposals should demonstrate alignment with one or more BAM Special Interest Groups and with BAM’s Mission and one or more of its Strategic Objectives. Proposals are equally welcomed from established subject areas and newly emerging domains. Priority will be given to proposals with clear and effective publication, dissemination and impact plans; and that enhance early career research skill development.

The Principal Investigator must have gained the PhD less than 5 years before the date of closing of applications. Co-Investigators are welcomed, and if they do not fit the early career definition, they must explain clearly their role in the work and in developing the skills of the Principal Investigator. The Principal Investigator and all Co-Investigators must be BAM Members and have active BAM membership for duration of the project. The maximum value of award is £4,000.

Applicants are strongly advised to read the Terms and Conditions and Financial Guidance before making an application to the Scheme.
