Research Advisory Board Funding Grants

The CAQ and the public company auditing profession are dedicated to supporting valuable independent academic research that can have important, real-world impact on audit quality and the future of auditing.

The CAQ, through its Research Advisory Board (RAB), annually awards grants to fund auditing-related scholarly research. Since 2009, the RAB, comprised of representatives from academia and the profession, has awarded 39 grants for independent academic research projects.

The RAB is now accepting submissions for the 2019 request for proposals. Interested researchers must submit their proposal by Thursday, March 14, 2019, using the online submission process which is available by clicking here. There is no fee for proposal submissions, and awards will be announced by the end of May. Learn more about the topics that the RAB consider to be of importance for the 2019 grant cycle.
