Deloitte & Touche/CAAA Research Grant Program – September 2007

The research call for the Deloitte & Touche now has a 30 September 2007 deadline for letters of intent.    

The CAAA gratefully acknowledges the financial support of Deloitte & Touche in making this research opportunity available to our members.  

Annual Research Fund Call Timelines

The CAAA Research Committee has decided to standardize the deadlines for its four research calls at the end of each quarter so that members can better plan by being aware that every quarter-end constitutes a deadline for one of its call.

Note that calls now give members two months to translate their Letter of Intent into a full-blown research grant proposal.  CICA and D&T research call deadlines have been kept six months apart because they generally attract similar applicants.  We are hoping that ongoing funding from our donors will allow us to further standardize our administrative and adjudication process.    

Annual Reports

CAAA members who have received CAAA research grants are reminded of their obligations to submit annual progress reports of their research activities to the CAAA secretariat (admin@caaa.ca).  In addition, grant recipients are also required to submit final reports and completed working paper(s) when their projects are completed.  Our funding partners require output measures (working papers, conference presentations, publications) that they can report to their stakeholders in order top justify continued funding.  Thank you to all the members who have already submitted their progress and final reports.
