Apply for a Research Grant

The Institute currently has two opportunities available for individuals seeking research grants.

If you are interested in support for research on membership associations, please go to the information on our partnership with ASAE.

If you are a doctoral student at NC State University interested in applying for a small research grant to study a topic relevant to nonprofit organizations, please check back for more information.  Historically, we have called for proposals for doctoral student research grants in December, with the proposal due in February.   The purpose of the doctoral research grant program is to encourage research by students on or about nonprofits, volunteerism or philanthropy.
