QSR Early Career Researcher Grant 2022

Often the most innovative research comes from those just starting their careers. As such, QSR International is thrilled to be supporting the next generation of qualitative research innovation!

QSR Early Career Researcher Grant recognizes that early career researchers often find it difficult to access research grants as they have to compete with established scholars. This is why QSR has established this grant just for those starting out on their research careers.

QSR Early Career Researcher Grant proposals guidelines

Proposals will be reviewed and assessed by an academic committee appointed by QSR. They will be looking for the following:

  • a clearly stated and realistic research idea and budget
    an appropriate relevant review of the literature supporting the significance of the research proposal,
  • a research design that is appropriate for the stated aims,
  • a detailed realistic plan for data collection and analysis
    the kinds of output planned for the research results,
  • and extra points will be awarded if the proposal is innovative in terms of any of the following – the subject of research, the research design, the data collection method, the analysis process or the output.


The grant of US$25,000 is intended to provide either partial relief from teaching duties and associated academic administration
for a term/semester and/or research expenses over a two-year period.
