Case Research Foundation

The Case Research Foundation promotes awareness, development, and dissemination of case research, writing and teaching through the provision of scholarships, grants, and more.  Currently, the major activity of the CRF is administering the Paul R. Lawrence Fellowship Program. This program provides fellowships to doctoral students and junior faculty in the first three years of a tenure-track or equivalent appointment to be trained in case research, writing, and teaching at the NACRA annual meeting. 

The Case Research Foundation (CRF) was founded in 2014 as a nonprofit public benefit corporation. The first fellowships were awarded at the 2015 NACRA Annual Conference. The CRF is a 501(c)3 organization. Donations to the Foundation are tax-deductible, to the extent allowed by law. For more information on the program and how to donate, please go to

The Case Research Foundation thanks Ivey Publishing, Emerald Publishing, and SAGE Business Cases, as well as the many individual donors who have generously supported the work of the Case Research Foundation and its fellowship program this year.
