The world’s leading developer of qualitative research analysis software has launched its second teaching grants program, with funding of more than US$37,000 on offer.
QSR International will award six grants to academics teaching qualitative research methods in universities in America, Canada and the Asia Pacific region.
Each grant can be put towards NVivo 8 or NVivo 9 software licenses, NVivo training workbooks and training and consulting services from QSR.
QSR CEO John Owen says the grants are a great opportunity for universities to put additional teaching resources in place.
"This is our way of helping universities and colleges to incorporate the latest qualitative data analysis software into their undergraduate and graduate courses. It’s a fantastic opportunity for us to support what could be the future stars of the research industry."
Following the success of the inaugural teaching grants program in 2009, QSR will give away four grants of US$5,000 each to assistant, associate or full professors working in academic institutions in the US and Canada.
Two grants will be awarded for courses being taught in the September 2010 semester – with one grant awarded to an undergraduate course and the other awarded to a graduate course.
A further two grants – one each for a graduate and an undergraduate course – will be awarded for the January 2011 semester.
For the first time, two grants of AUS$10,000 each will be awarded to non-casual academic staff working in academic institutions in Australia, New Zealand or Asia.
They will be awarded for use in any semester during the 2011 academic year and may be used as part of graduate or undergraduate courses.
NVivo 9 will be released later in 2010, and it will allow users to upload and analyze text, video, audio, images and database tables. NVivo software is used across a wide range of research methods, from ethnography to grounded theory, discourse analysis and mixed methods research.
It’s used by academic, commercial and government organizations in more than 150 countries.
Application details for the NVivo Teaching Grant Program can be found at
Each application will be assessed by three reviewers, who have been chosen due to their experience in qualitative research, their knowledge of qualitative data analysis software and their experience in teaching qualitative methods.
