FUNDING OPPORTUNITIES
Deadline: December 3, 2018 4pm EST
The NCAA Innovations in Research and Practice Grant Program supports research and data-driven pilot programs designed to enhance student-athlete psychosocial well-being and mental health. In 2019, the NCAA will award $100,000 in grants to member institutions (awards total $25,000/each) that are designing data-informed resources or piloting on-campus programs aimed at enhancing the well-being of NCAA student-athletes. Grant recipients will be invited to present their work to hundreds of key stakeholders in intercollegiate athletics in January 2020 at the NCAA Convention in Anaheim, California.
The goal of the program is to substantially increase collaborative contacts between accomplished, active mathematicians in the United States, who do not otherwise have access to funding that allows support for travel and visitors. Awards will be based on the quality and significance of the applicant's previous research and the likely impact the collaboration will have both for the applicant and the applicant's graduate students and/or postdoctoral fellows.
