The Center for International Business Education and Research (CIBER) seeks to fund Ph.D. research that advances our understanding of the international context in which business is conducted. We are particularly interested in research proposals that meet the congressionally mandated CIBER mission to contribute to: (a) the internationalization of business disciplines, and/or (b) the global competitiveness of U.S. businesses. As such, we would welcome proposals on international themes from any of the business disciplines.
We solicit proposals from doctoral students at an advanced stage in the program. Proposals should include a short description of the proposed research (maximum 2-3 pages), a budget or description of how funds will be used, and a letter of support from a faculty member in the student’s department. Please specify whether the grant would support dissertation research. The funds may be used for any research related purpose, including travel, data and/or equipment purchase, and summer salary support. Please note however that funds may not be used to support travel to international conferences.
Proposals will be evaluated for analytical rigor, practical relevance and potential for impact. It is expected that award recipients will submit a progress report by September 30, to enable us to adhere to reporting requirements for the U.S. Department of Education. Future publications should acknowledge support from CIBER.
