*Deadline extended to January 15, 2014*
The Centre of Excellence in Accounting and Reporting for Co-operatives (CEARC) has made a research fund available for research in accounting and reporting for co-operatives and credit unions. There is only one call for proposals per year. A total of $20,000 is available for this call. These funds may be awarded to more than one recipient. For example, the funds could be given to 2 people ($10,000 each) or to 4 people ($5,000 each).
The main purpose of this fund is to encourage researchers in Canada as well as internationally to undertake projects of relevance to accounting and financial reporting in the co-operative and credit union sectors. The research project may be of interest to either/both academics and practitioners. While not a specific requirement, ideally the research will lead to a broad dissemination of its results through conference presentations and journal publication.
