The QRCA thanks its YPG partners, FocusVision, M/A/R/C Research and Schlesinger Associates, for their generosity in increasing the number of grants they funded from 10 to 12 due to the high volume of applications received.
These recipients, who demonstrated keen interest and dedication to the field, have been awarded passes to attend the QRCA’s Annual Conference in Los Angeles, California, January 18-20, 2017. This annual conference is the premier gathering for qualitative practitioners (QRCs), with unparalleled opportunities to connect and network with other QRCs, expand and strengthen skill sets via hands-on collaborative practice, learn from the best of the best in the industry, refresh your perspective, and reinvigorate your business with new methodologies, tools, and partners.
“The YPG program has been such a wonderful win/win/win for the QRCA as a whole, our members and the grant recipients,” says QRCA President Manny Schrager. “Former grant winners have become actively engaged QRCA members, seeing how membership and volunteering leads to continued growth through both learning and networking. Current members enjoy meeting with recipients who often bring fresh thinking to their approach to qualitative research. We’re excited to once again have so many highly qualified applicants which made the job of the selection committee a very difficult one.”
