Grants of $5,000 to USA, Canada, and International individuals for research projects that focus on how to improve forecasting methods and/or forecasting business practices. Funding is intended to support research projects that aim to fill gaps in knowledge that are currently identified, so as to advance these two purposes: to enable better forecasts and to enable better use of forecasting by business organizations.

Should there be a lack of suitable proposal in one of the areas, two grants could be made in a single area.

The "Methodology Grants" will be directed at studies that assess the value of new or untested forecasting methods or principles. The "Business Application Grants" will be directed at studies on the application of forecasting principles to business decision processes and the management of the forecasting function.

Consideration will be given to new researchers, and whether supplementary funding is likely to be gained.
