BAM and Partner Grant Schemes 2023

The British Academy of Management (BAM) together with the Australian and New Zealand Academy of Management (ANZAM), Irish Academy of Management (IAM) and Società Italiana di Management (SIMA) are pleased to announce the launch of the 2023 grant schemes.

ABOUT THE SCHEMES:

BAM Transitions 1 Research Grant Scheme

Maximum £4,000 per project for up to 3 projects for early career researchers

This Scheme is aimed at BAM members who are early in their career, who hold a PhD, and who 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 the Academy’s intellectual remit. 

The Principal Investigator must have been awarded their PhD less than 5 years before the deadline for applications. Co-Investigators are welcomed, and if they do not fit the early career definition, the application must clearly explain their role in the work and in developing the skills of the Principal Investigator.

BAM Transitions 2 Research Grant Scheme

Maximum £4,000 per project for up to 3 projects for established researchers

This Scheme is aimed at BAM members who are experienced researchers and who wish to develop an empirical research project that advances business and management scholarship and develops their research capacities in an empirical or intellectual domain. Proposals may be related to any subject area within the Academy’s intellectual remit. 

The Principal Investigator must have been awarded their PhD more than 5 years before the deadline for applications.  Principal and Co-Investigators do not have to be based in the UK.

BAM Management Knowledge and Education (MKE) Award

Maximum £4,000 per project for up to 3 projects.

This Scheme is aimed at BAM members who want to propose a research project that informs scholarly debate around management knowledge and education. Research projects should contribute to theoretical and philosophical understandings that inform the practice of management educators. Potential themes include: management learning and teaching, pedagogy, andragogy, leadership development or the generation and circulation of management knowledge and knowing. Priority will be given to proposals that advance the objectives of the BAM MKE.

This scheme is open to all BAM Members regardless of when they were awarded their PhD.  Principal and Co-Investigators do not have to be based in the UK.

BAM-Australian and New Zealand Academy of Management (ANZAM) Collaborative Research Award

Maximum £6,000 for 1 project

The scheme gives priority for the development of members of the British Academy of Management and the Australian and New Zealand Academy of Management (ANZAM) who are at an early stage in their careers, defined by being less than 5 years after completing their PhD at the date of closing of applications. More experienced researchers are welcome to apply, but they must clearly explain their role in the work and in developing the skills of early career researchers. Priority will be given to proposals with clear and effective publication, dissemination and impact plans.

At least one investigator must be employed at an academic institution in either Australia or New Zealand and another investigator must be employed at an academic institution in the UK to ensure collaborative research between the two regions with fieldwork being required in both regions.
