As part of our mission to support and inspire case method practitioners, we offer a number of Case Writing Scholarships each year to both individuals and teams.

Your scholarship package will include financial support of £1,000 ($1,200, €1,150) and a free place on one of our expert-led case writing workshops – an invaluable opportunity to benefit from the knowledge and experience of an internationally respected case writer and share experiences and insights with fellow writers on the course.

Who is eligible?

You are welcome to apply if you are an unpublished case writer and a faculty member or PhD student with teaching responsibilities*. Teams of two or more unpublished writers can also apply. Scholarship teams will share the financial award and send one member of their team on the free case writing workshop.

How does it work?

You can apply using our online form below. Once submitted to us your application will be reviewed by our expert panel.

If your application is successful:

  • you will be invited to attend one of our case writing workshops (recommended but not compulsory)
  • half of your scholarship will be paid when the first draft of your case is complete
  • you will receive professional feedback on the first draft of your case
  • the rest of your scholarship will be paid on completion of your case and teaching note
  • your case must be completed within 12 months of being awarded the scholarship.

If you wish to attend the free workshop, you must do so before submitting your case for final publication. You cannot use your free place after your case has been completed and submitted.

On completion, you will receive a certificate from The Case Centre in recognition of your achievement.

Types of case

Your completed case must clearly identify a protagonist and supporting actors, and articulate an issue, decision, problem or opportunity. It can be based on field research, published sources or generalised experience.

There is no word limit, but you must include a teaching note.

Your case and teaching note must be written in English. You can also submit versions in other languages in addition to your main entry in English.

Multimedia cases are also accepted.

Financial support

If your scholarship application is successful you may wish to use the financial support to contribute towards costs associated with:

  • interviewing primary sources 
  • accessing newspaper articles, magazines, journals, reports or databases for data collection 
  • attending the case writing workshop that is included in your scholarship (e.g. travel, accommodation etc.)
  • funding a research assistant 
  • creating multimedia items to accompany your case.
