Emerald Research Grant Awards
"The Emerald Group Publishing Limited has a long-standing commitment to support the research community via a number of methods including doctoral and research fund awards, benefiting both those at the outset of their academic careers and the more established researchers."
The Emerald Research Grant Award will be awarded to individuals seeking support to conduct research in business librarianship. The funds may be used at the discretion of the award recipients. Award recipient must be an ALA member or at least one member of a collaborative team must be an ALA member. Recipients may be asked to present their findings at a public BRASS event within two years of receiving the award (at the discretion of the BRASS Executive Committee). Recipients will also be required to acknowledge the Emerald Research Grant when publishing or presenting their research.
One $5,000 award will be presented. The awards (check and citation) will be presented at the RUSA Awards Ceremony at the annual conferences each year. Recipients will be required to attend the RUSA Awards Ceremony.
