Foundation / Corporation
International Institute of Forecasters (IIF) and SAS®
Grants of $5,000 to USA, Canada, and International individuals for research projects that focus on how to improve forecasting methods and/or forecasting business practices. Funding is intended to support research projects that aim to fill gaps in knowledge that are currently identified, so as to advance these two purposes: to enable better forecasts and to enable better use of forecasting by business organizations.
Should there be a lack of suitable proposal in one of the areas, two grants could be made in a single area.
The "Methodology Grants" will be directed at studies that assess the value of new or untested forecasting methods or principles. The "Business Application Grants" will be directed at studies on the application of forecasting principles to business decision processes and the management of the forecasting function.
Consideration will be given to new researchers, and whether supplementary funding is likely to be gained.

Applications will be assessed through a committee appointed by the IIF directors. The results of the evaluation will be announced to the applicants within 12 weeks of the closing date.
It is expected that the research supported by the SAS/IIF grant be presented in an International Symposium on Forecasting (ISF) organized by the IIF.
Grant recipients are also required to author a paper reporting on their research for possible publication in the International Journal of Forecasting (IJF). Therefore it is useful to keep in mind the IJF scope, https://forecasters.org/ijf/ijf-scope/.
