ISM Grant Overview



The ISM Doctoral Dissertation Grant Program exists to encourage and develop doctoral students interested in procurement, supply management and supply chain management to pursue and complete their dissertation research in these fields of study. ISM has been a proud supporter of this program for over fifty years, awarding the first such grant in 1960 to Dr. Harold Fearon.

In 2015, ISM will award one grant of USD $12,000. The award recipient will receive one half of the grant upon award (to be delivered no later than August 1, 2015) and one half upon successful completion of their dissertation. Candidates have three years from the date of award to complete their dissertation.

The successful candidate will be notified of the award no later than May 15, 2015.
