Grant Information & Application
NTR is especially interested in supporting scholars from different institutions who wish to work together on a project. For example, a scholar might wish to spend several months in residence with a research group at another institution and use the grant to pay for transportation and housing. Alternatively, a group of scholars from different institutions might wish to use the grant jointly to meet jointly and move their mutual research program ahead. NTR grants may also be used for a single scholar’s typical costs of doing research: participant fees, coding, statistical analysis, etc.
NTR grants are open to scholars at any career stage, but NTR would especially like to support advanced PhD students, post docs or junior faculty. If there is a residency involved in the grant application, the applicant and the residency host must submit jointly.
Product and Acknowledgment
Researchers who receive support from NTR should acknowledge that support in publications that result from research supported by NTR. “This research was supported by a grant from NTR (negotiationandteamresources.com).” At the end of the NTR grant period, NTR expects researchers to submit an abstract of no more than 500 words describing the research. The abstract should be appropriate for posting on the NTR web site. NTR encourages grant recipients to present their research at international meetings.
2019 Application Information

Complete the downloadable Application Form, which requires a 500 word abstract and a budget. Grant money may be used for travel, health insurance, visas, inoculations, living expenses, research expenses, and software (but not hardware). If this is a residency grant, the application must be signed by applicant and host. NTR is a 501c(3) corporation and does not pay overhead. Attach the Application Form to a grant proposal of not more than 10 pages. Add the applicant’s CV and the host’s CV.

NTR Research Host Guidelines
- Hosts should have an ongoing research program in conflict, negotiation, or dispute resolution, all broadly defined.
- Hosts’ institutions are expected to provide support for the resident in obtaining any necessary visas and health insurance. If home country health care will not extend coverage, NTR funds may be used for health insurance. Hosts are expected to provide desk space, library access, and internet connection for the resident. Ideally, the resident would have the status of visiting scholar and an institutional ID for the duration of the residency. Hosts are expected to welcome the resident and invite the resident to meet regularly with the host and the host’s research team. Hosts or hosts’ institutions should provide the resident with assistance in finding short-term housing. Hosts are encouraged to provide research funds for projects involving the resident to the extent possible.
- The expectation of the NTR Research Grant program is that the transfer of knowledge will go both ways. Residents should not be treated as free labor or given meaningless tasks. Hosts and residents should work together to produce a joint product. A 500 word abstract of that joint product should be emailed to email@example.com at the end of the proposed grant period.
- For US residencies. If the resident is to be in direct contact with human subjects or data with identifiers, the host should arrange for the resident to take the CITI exam in advance of arrival. Alternatives include having the resident work only with non-identifiable data, or designing studies that the resident will run at his/her home institution.
