Joan Schafer Research Faculty Award in Sport, Fitness, and Disability
Application Deadline July 31, 2017 

The Joan Schafer Research Faculty Award in Sport, Fitness, and Disability, established in 2015, provides up to $5,000 for projects investigating how living with a physical challenge influences access to and participation in sport and physical activity. Projects that have real world application are a top funding priority. This grant supports both theoretical as well as intervention research, including challenges and solutions related to transitioning to civilian life from military service.

Support may be requested for individual activities, such as research assistance, research-related travel, or research materials.  We support collaborative projects,  pilot studies or initial research efforts. While providing funds for new and emerging work is a priority for this program, requests for support of ongoing programs of research are also considered. Applications accepted from all academic disciplines.
