Make sure you don’t miss out on this exciting opportunity to secure funding to conduct research on issues related to audit practice and, as a grant awardee, receive an invitation to the 2019 CAQ Symposium which is held in conjunction with the AAA Annual Meeting. In November 2018, the CAQ released its Request for Proposals (RFP) for the 2019 funding cycle.

One of the benefits of a CAQ research grant is the opportunity to have a senior practice leader serve as an advisor in the refinement of your project design -- an invaluable interaction. Those interested in archival research, literature reviews and syntheses, descriptive analyses, meta analyses, and behavioral/experimental studies addressing auditing issues are encouraged to apply.
