Grant Description
Grants of $10,000 to USA, Canada, and International researchers for projects that explore how to improve business forecasting methods and practices, including the organizational management aspects of the forecasting process. Grant recipients are required to author a paper reporting on their research for possible publication in the International Journal of Forecasting (IJF). It is also expected that the research supported by the grant be presented in the International Symposium on Forecasting.
  • The "methodology grant" will be directed to studies that assess the value of new or untested forecasting methods or principles.
  • The "application grant" will be directed to studies on the application of forecasting principles to business decision processes and the management of the forecasting function.

The grant committee will select research proposals to fill identified gaps in current knowledge so as to advance these two purposes: to enable better forecasts and to enable better use of forecasting by business organizations. In the absence of a suitable proposal in one of the categories, two grants may be awarded in a single category.
