July 14, 2022

The 2022 Haslam Summer Scholars Research Awards program has awarded 42 grants totaling approximately $950,000 to Haslam College of Business faculty members to pursue high-quality research. This represents the highest single-year monetary total in the program’s nine-year history. Since its inception, the program has funded more than $4 million in faculty research.

“As our faculty have continued to grow in number and in terms of capabilities, their aggregate research output has increased as well,” Chad Autry, the college’s associate dean for research and faculty and the R.
