Grants ranging from $30,000 to $50,000 to USA organizations, universities and individuals for a study that examines mutually beneficial volunteer relationships. April 30 is the deadline for a letter of intent. Funding is intended to pursue research that answers the following question:

What are the internal operational systems that form the basis of a mutually beneficial volunteer relationship in the association context?

Proposals will be accepted that include research methodologies that most appropriately and efficiently address the research question, including, but not limited to: mixed-methods, qualitative and quantitative designs (interviews, focus groups, case studies, surveys), experimental designs, longitudinal research or other multi-year analyses with staggered deliverables culminating in a final product.

The results of this study must be delivered in the form of a research report which will serve as the basis for one or more deliverables. The additional deliverables (to be proposed in the application) should include practitioner-appropriate reports, publications, tools, or resources.
