The Stanley Sun Faculty Global Research Fund: Solicitation of Research in Support of the Hospitality, Travel, and Service Industries
Thanks to the Stanley Sun Faculty Global Research Fund, the Center for Hospitality Research (CHR) is offering grants in support of faculty in the Nolan School of Hotel Administration and across the Cornell SC Johnson College of Business who are researching topics of interest and importance to the hospitality, travel, and service industries.
Faculty conducting hospitality research—which may be conceptual or empirical and may involve literature reviews, comparative studies, field studies, laboratory experiments, simulation experiments, model building, or theory development—may apply for up to $10,000 in reimbursements to cover their research expenses.
How to apply:
To request funding for research expenses, write a brief proposal summarizing your research, in which you specify:
The research question, proposed timeline, methodology, and any data needed;
The contribution of the research to the field;
How your research advances hospitality thought leadership; and
A proposed budget detailing expenses (see budget guidelines for allowable/unallowable expenses).
The funding period will be 1-3 years, depending on the scope of research and as designated in the proposal. At the halfway point of the grant period, recipients will be asked to provide a brief progress update, in which they may request an extension (with justification) if more time is needed to complete their study.
A final report, written for an industry audience, is due one month after the funding period ends.
