Global Research Perspectives Program
The Global Research Perspectives Program is CPA Australia's annual research grants program, which encourages and supports research worldwide that is relevant to our membership, the profession and the global business community.
CPA Australia will consider bold and innovative projects that have merit and potential. CPA Australia supports the dissemination of high quality and innovative research to influence governments, regulators and standards, and inform our members.
New research grants are available for researchers, institutions and consultancies. Partnerships between academe and business are encouraged. We welcome cross-disciplinary applications and requests for joint funding with other organisations.
Proposals for research go through a rigorous review process prior to commissioning and funding. In 2013, we introduced a two stage application process.
These short form applications will be reviewed with all applicants informed within six weeks if CPA Australia requires further details for consideration.
If you are required to submit further details, including detailed budget and milestones, we will provide you with the second longer form application.
Eligibility for funding
Applicants may hold a grant concurrently with another award or grant if all funding and details of the project are disclosed to CPA Australia.
CPA Australia will consider bold and innovative projects in the following areas:
Accounting and finance education
Accounting and finance education faces challenges as it strives to define, teach and assess relevant knowledge, skills and abilities in a changing world. Technological innovations involving big data, blockchain, AI and robotics, as well as the rapidly changing social, cultural, economic and political contexts in which we live and work, demand a wide range of high-level transferable skills and intercultural fluency.
