AFAANZ Research Grants


AFAANZ Research Fund (ARF) Annual Grants Program

The AFAANZ Research Fund (ARF) Annual Grants Program is designed to encourage and support AFAANZ members by providing funding for research projects. The grants are competitive, and are primarily intended to support small‐scale projects of up to one year’s duration or to assist in seed funding for larger scale projects. Applicants must demonstrate their ability to conduct the research proposed and show how the project will benefit the research profile of the individuals and the discipline. The pool of funds comes directly from fees paid by institutional members. As such, access to the ARF is limited to staff based at an Institutional Member. A call for applications will be placed on the AFAANZ website in the first week of March.

Accounting and Finance Doctoral Education Network Travel Grants

Initiated in 2015, the AFAANZ Doctoral Education Network (AFDEN) aims to encourage and help enable the broad offering of a rich suite of doctoral‐level subjects suitable for accounting and finance students in their first year of study, leading up to confirmation. Through AFDEN, AFAANZ does not purport to grant degrees or offer any of its own coursework. AFDEN, very much like its European "cousin" EDEN, purely facilitates a co‐ordinated network for accounting and finance doctoral education across our region.

AFAANZ recognises that a critical impediment to the success of AFDEN is the “tyranny of distance” and, particularly, the related issue of nontrivial travel costs. Accordingly, to help overcome this obstacle we have established the “AFDEN Scholar” designation – which, critically, attracts a Travel Scholarship award.
