CAAA Research Grant Program

Call for Proposals  

Proposals due: November 2, 2015

The Canadian Academic Accounting Association has made a research fund available to its members. There will be one call for proposals per year.


The broad purpose of this fund is to encourage Canadian academics to undertake projects of relevance to accounting academic or professional communities. The research under this program need not lead to publication in a scholarly journal, although it may lead to one or more such publications. The research project may result in a report that is both useful to practitioners and provides background in an area that could be the subject of further academic exploration.  

Funding Criteria

The main funding criteria are that the work be relevant to the accounting community, be of satisfactory quality, and be completed on a timely basis.

The relevance and quality criteria are ensured by the expertise provided by the CAAA Research Committee’s examination / approval of the proposal. The timeliness criterion is addressed by requiring a detailed time line in the proposal showing expected dates for production of reports or working papers. The reports or working papers must be completed within 24 months.   


Guidelines for preparing proposals under the program are available at the CAAA website. The proposal should highlight the relevance to the accounting community and the time line for completion. The proposal must be submitted by e-mail by November 2 to Carina Hackett, with a copy to the Chair of the CAAA Research Committee, Natalia Kochetova-Kozloski (

The CAAA Research Committee or its delegates will evaluate proposals received and make a decision concerning suitability, including the amount of funding. The Committee’s decision is final and not subject to appeal. Successful applicants will be notified by approximately November 30.  

Questions should be directed to the Carina Hackett, or the Chair of the CAAA Research Committee, Natalia Kochetova-Kozloski (
