The United Nations-supported Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME) aims to raise the profile of sustainability in business schools around the word and equip today’s business students with the understanding and ability to deliver change tomorrow. In order to achieve this, it is necessary to develop innovative pedagogic approaches and teaching practices. Barriers, however, may exist in terms of lack of funding that prevent individuals or groups putting their ideas into practice.
As a result, the UK and Ireland Chapter of PRME is making available three awards up to the value of £750 to support the development of innovative approaches to pedagogy.
Who can apply?
The competition is open to all faculty in PRME Signatory Schools in the UK and Ireland who are members of the UK and Ireland PRME Chapter.
How much funding is available and what can it be used for?
Three awards up to the value of £750 are available. The funding may be used to cover the holding of events, such as workshops and trips, and the development of digital or printed resources. Successful applicants can draw down funding on a vouched basis during 2020. Please note, grants cannot be used to purchase equipment, unless this is specialist equipment essential to the project.
How will applications be judged?
Funding will be allocated based on the following criteria:
Relevance to the objectives of PRME;
Evidence of need for funding and clear outline of what it will be used for; The generation of transferable learning/resources; and
Applications are particularly welcome in relation to initiatives that are interdisciplinary in nature or addressing topics that are currently underrepresented.
How will outcomes be disseminated?
It is expected that any resources/materials generated from the funding will be available to all PRME UKI members (usually via the website, for example, in a document or webinar) on an open access basis. It is also expected that funding recipients will share the learning from their work through a presentation/workshop at the annual UKI Chapter conference.
What's the time frame?
The closing date for applications has now been extended to 14th April 2020, and successful applicants will be notified by 15th May 2020. Funding must drawn down by 18 December 2020.
