NTR Research Grant

Grant Information & Application


NTR’s 2020 round of research grants will be focused on negotiation and conflict management. Grant making will be in coordination with IACM and the CM division of the Academy of Management. A CM led committee will evaluate the grant proposals and make recommendations to the NTR Board of directors for funding.

Given the COVID 19 pandemic, NTR is particularly interested in research that uses a variety of online methods, such as capturing negotiators’ chatting, talking, and interacting via video, rather than research that sets up a scenario and asks people how they would negotiate.  Grant money can be used to pay for data capture and coding. Use or record individual Zoom sessions to capture negotiators negotiating! Such data often require behavioral coding. Please contact  for new effective, efficient ways to code and capture negotiation strategy.

NTR grants supporting research on negotiation and conflict management are open to scholars associated with universities globally.  These grants are available to scholars and teams of scholars at any career stage, but NTR and  would especially like to support advanced PhD students, post docs or junior faculty.  These grants are available to scholars around the world so long as their institution will accept grant funds in U.S. dollars without taking overhead or indirect costs.
