HRPI Research Awards

The Human Resources Policy Institute (HRPI) at Boston University Questrom School of Business is now accepting proposals for this year’s HRPI Research Awards. Ranging from $2,000 to $10,000 and open to all BU faculty and doctoral candidates, these grants support promising early-stage research on topics that can inform and innovate HR-related challenges and the leadership of people in organizations, more generally.

Possible research topics include, but are not limited to, diversity & inclusion, gender & inequality, work of the future, HR/people analytics, AI and ethics, worker mobility, compensation, and developments in employment relationships. Award decisions are based on importance and relevance of research, clarity and appropriateness of research design, feasibility to complete the project within a reasonable timeline, and appropriateness of the budget for successful completion of the project.

HRPI is a network of faculty, fellows, graduate students, and HR executives committed to transforming modern HR practices through innovative research that bears on the HR-related challenges faced by contemporary organizations. HRPI’s membership spans all industries and sectors, including companies such as CVS, Fidelity, GE, LinkedIn, Procter & Gamble, Raytheon, and more.
