Request a Grant Writer

Awards of $250 and $1,000 to USA, Canada, and International marketing instructors to support excellence in marketing education by recognizing significant educational innovations. The innovation can be a single project, activity, assignment, exercise, method, or event, as opposed to an overall philosophy or strategy in marketing education.

This annual competition is held concurrently with the MMA Fall Educators’ Conference to recognize outstanding innovators in marketing education. Three finalists will be selected from the written submissions to present their teaching innovation at the conference. The winning innovation will be selected from the three presentations, with all three recognized at the Awards Luncheon.

Teaching innovations do not have to be entirely new pedagogical methodologies. In fact, they rarely are. More typically innovations build upon existing teaching approaches through meaningful improvements, unique additions, and/or novel adaptations. Entrants should take reasonable measures to ensure their proposed innovation has not been previously published or recognized as a winner or finalist in a different competition. Please give this investigation due diligence through conversations with colleagues both within and outside of your university, and thorough literature reviews.

Submissions will be evaluated using the following criteria: positioning statement, uniqueness and significance of the innovation, ease of use, adaptability for other marketing courses and/or levels, effectiveness and impact of the innovation, and overall quality and clarity of the innovation. Citations should follow APA guidelines.

The innovation, in its current form, must not have been previously published or recognized as a teaching competition winner.

Pre-Application Information:

The process starts with the submission of a paper of up to eight pages describing the innovation. Papers must be submitted electronically to the competition coordinator, Theresa B. Clarke, by the end of Sunday, May 19, 2019. You are welcome to contact Theresa if you have questions about the competition or need assistance.

Submitting a paper indicates intention for all listed authors to register for and attend the conference if selected as a finalist, and that for multiple-author entries, each author must have made a significant contribution. Note that the early conference registration fee deadline is August 1, 2019.

A panel of judges selects three finalists to present at the 2019 MMA Fall Educators’ Conference, taking place September 18-20, 2019 in Santa Fe, NM. The winning innovation will be selected from the three presentations, with all three recognized at the MMA Awards Luncheon on Thursday, September 19th.
