Grant Information & Application
NTR’s 2020 round of Teaching Grants are intended to support development of new instructional materials in the areas of negotiation and conflict management.
NTR is particularly interested in proposals that address the way much negotiation was being done (but seldom taught) even before the COVID 19 pandemic, for example using combinations of online technologies to reach agreement over time.
NTR’s teaching grants are being made in coordination with IACM and the CM division of the Academy of Management. A teaching grant might be used to support research and development of a new multi-media negotiation exercise or a new evaluation resource, such as NTR’s Peer Feedback resource, or its Culture and Negotiation Survey resource.
NTR’s Spring 2020 round of Teaching Grants are open to scholars at any career stage. However, NTR prioritizes supporting young scholars associated with an academic institution globally. The scholar’s institution must be able to accept the grant funds in U.S. dollars and commit to taking no overhead or indirect expense costs.

NTR Teaching Grant Internship Host Guidelines
- Hosts should have significant past experience teaching negotiation, conflict, and/or dispute resolution, and be teaching during the period of the internship.
- Hosts’ institutions are expected to provide support for the intern 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 welcome the resident and invite the resident to meet regularly with the host and the host’s teaching assistants during the period of planning for, delivering, and grading the class.
- NTR Teaching Interns should not be treated as a free teaching assistant with full responsibility for getting materials to students or grading. However, learning how to write an exam, how to grade, and how to give student feedback are important elements of learning how to teach negotiation, conflict, and dispute resolution.
