State Board Report

March 2015

Through April 13, 2015, NASBA will be accepting grant proposals for accounting education research projects. Faculty and post-doctoral researchers in U.S. academic institutions are encouraged to submit proposals for research in educational issues impacting the public accounting profession and the Boards of Accountancy’s charge to protect the public. Some suggested topics include: the impact of on-line and massive open online courses (MOOC) on accounting education; the effectiveness of non-traditional teaching and delivery methods; characteristics of successful Uniform CPA Examination candidates; and variables in accounting programs that impact candidates’ Examination performance.

Recipients of the 2014 NASBA grants included researchers from Santa Clara University, Kansas State University, Florida State University and Western Illinois University. Grant recipients for this year will be announced in May. For 2015, a maximum of three grants totaling up to $25,000 for one-year research projects will be awarded. The NASBA Education Committee, chaired by Dr. Robert J. Cochran (VA), will be reviewing the proposals and making their recommendations to the NASBA Board of Directors.

Grant proposals must be submitted electronically through by 11:59 p.m. (Central Time) on April 13, 2015. More details on proposal submission can be found in the Research Grants section of this website.
