Funding Proposal Guidelines

The McNulty Leadership Program is seeking proposals from Wharton faculty to fund research related to the goal of advancing inclusive leadership within organizations.

The grants provide up to $7,500 for research support. Proposals can reflect a broad range of theoretical and methodological perspectives. The funds may be used only for research assistants, summer interns, data collection, surveys, and other direct research expenses.

Award recipients are required to write at least one written product geared for an educated, lay audience based on their research and/or either a blog post for Wharton’s Center for Leadership and Change Management . We request acknowledgment of the funding support in published research.
