2014 Graduate Student Research Grant Program

The NCAA Research Committee is pleased to announce the 2014 NCAA Graduate Student Research Grant Program.

The NCAA Research Committee invites research proposals within the general topic areas of student-athlete well-being and college athletics participation.  Research grants are available for graduate students only and are intended to support the student while conducting research to be used for a doctoral dissertation, master’s thesis or external publication.  Awards for these one-time research grants are set at a maximum of $7,500.

Recipients will be expected to culminate their project in an article suitable for publication in a scholarly journal, or in a completed master’s thesis or dissertation.  Grant recipients will also be expected to submit a brief summary of the research that is suitable for publication in the NCAA News.

The program’s goals are:

  1. to stimulate research on college athletics
  2. to foster contributions to the empirical research on college athletics
  3. to provide financial support to graduate students interested in engaging in high-quality research related to college athletics
  4. to assist NCAA-member institutions and the general public in gaining access to new, outstanding research in this field

The deadline to apply is August 10, 2014.

For more information, see the 2014 Call for Proposals.
