CFP: NCAA Innovations in Research and Practice Grant Program
The NCAA will award $100,000 in grants for the 2015 calendar year to support research and data-driven pilot programs designed to enhance student-athlete psychosocial well-being and mental health. Topics funded by the NCAA Innovations in Research and Practice Grant Program may include, but are not limited to, managing transitions (e.g., from recruit to first-year student; transferring between universities; adapting from youth sports to college sports environment; developing independence from parents), identity development, stress management, substance use, bystander intervention, cultivating healthy relationships, career exploration and sport exit strategies. Grant recipients will be invited to present their work to key stakeholders in intercollegiate athletics in January of 2016 at the NCAA Convention in San Antonio, TX. Proposals will be judged in part on their potential to result in campus-level programming that can positively impact the well-being of NCAA student-athletes.
