Grants Programs

In 2011, the SRF launched its inaugural program of research funding in the field of Strategic Management. The SRF has adopted a broad and inclusive view of research in the field it seeks to support and advance. Of particular importance is research that addresses practical, contemporary problems facing managers, has high potential impact on private and public policy, and/or is needed research that likely would not otherwise be done.

To date, there has been research funded under both the General and Dissertation Research Programs. Please click here to view a list of individuals who have received these grants.


Research in Organizations Program

The SRF is calling for research proposals to be submitted to the Research in Organizations Program (RiO). The goal of RiO is to connect research and practice, and to encourage strategy researchers to engage more closely with the strategic decision-makers and strategy developers in different types of organizations. Funding is available to facilitate empirical research studies conducted in organizational settings in which scholars collaborate with managers to generate new knowledge that contributes to both strategic management theory and the practice. The deadline to submit a proposal is July 1, 2016. Click here to learn more about the Research in Organizations Program

Dissertation Research Program

The SRF will soon be publishing a call for research proposals associated with doctoral students’ dissertations in strategic management. The deadline to submit a proposal for the 2016 grant cycle is October 31, 2016. Proposals should describe original research that contributes to the improvement and further development of the theory and practice of strategic management and that is required for the award of a doctoral degree. More information on this program, along with a full Call for Proposals will be available soon. Click here to learn more about the Dissertation Research Program
