Research & Scholarly Engagement
The Association of Fraternity/Sorority Advisors (AFA) values research related to the profession and the membership experience. Research will assist in advancing our profession and the fraternal movement. In 2017, AFA identified key areas of focus for future research activities. We encourage scholars and graduate students to conceptualize action and empirically-based research that may significantly improve the fraternity/sorority experience through evidenced-based practice.
Background
In 2017, after the strategic work groups completed their recommendations, the AFA board of directors made the decision to designate money in the AFA budget to provide additional support to this important strategic priority of the association.
Process
AFA invites faculty, staff, and graduate students to submit grants for consideration at the timeline included below. We strongly advise the research projects align with at least one of the Strategic Research Aims (listed in the application). Preference will be given to projects that are innovative and closely aligned to our Strategic Research Aims. Members of the Research Committee will review applications and determine which applications include sound research methodology and best meet stated research priorities.
