Doctoral research grants are also given to full-time and part-time doctoral students who are doing research on project, program, or portfolio management.

In addition to scholarships, the foundation confers honorary awards, undertakes research, prepares and disseminates project management related educational information, and awards financial grants to support project management life skills-related projects.

The deadline for these scholarships usually VARIES each year, and the award amount is usually $1,000 - $10,000.
