The award, sponsored by the AICPA, the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants and the Society of Management Accountants of Canada, recognizes academic papers that are considered to most likely have a significant impact on management accounting practice. It was created in 2009 to help support the next generation of management accounting researchers and underscore the importance of research to practice and the profession.

Eligible papers must have been published within the previous five years and submitted by the authors or nominated by peers. The sponsorship value is $2,000 per award.
